I am also lucky with the way the challenges have worked out this week as I am very short of time at the moment but have managed to make the above card which I can include in 6 challenges. I don't think I have ever combined any challenges before this week but have been able to this week.
I am entering this card into the following challenges
Challenge 1 - Friday Sketchers challenge http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/ which was to follow a nice sketch.
Challenge 2 - Just Magnolia http://justmagnolia.blogspot.com/ where the theme was Paper Piecing which I had never done before
Challenge 3 - ABC http://abc-challenge.blogspot.com/ where the theme was Summer
Challenge 4 - Scrappy frogs http://scrappyfrogschallenge.blogspot.com/ where the theme was something summery
Challenge 5 - Creative Inspirations http://cinspirations.blogspot.com/ where the theme was paper piecing
Challenge 6 - Roses on Paper http://ropchallenge.blogspot.com/ where the theme was to combine your card with another challenge and to use flowers
The card has been made using the Friday Sketchers sketch which can be found here http://fridaysketchersblog.blogspot.com/
The backing paper is by Craft Creations Ltd and is called Pink Meadow Stripes, the image is a new Magnolia stamp I bought which I received in the post yesterday, I think its really cute, its called Tilda in the Sea.
I hadn't ever paper pieced before so this is my first attempt. I have paper pieced her dress and hat using Papermania paper and coloured the rest of the image in with my Promarkers which I have then cut out with an oval nestie and a scalloped nestie to back it onto.
I have run the backing card pieces (on the left) through a swiss dots cuttlebug folder and the darker pink through the embossing folder with the birds on it (I can't remember the name of it at the moment- sorry). The flowers I have made from 2 sizes of X-cut Daisy punch and a small sun punch and finished off with a peel off in the centre. I have used gold stripe peel offs around the edges of the backing paper as well and the cream ribbon was from hobbycraft.
I thought this was a nice summery card and I enjoyed the paper piecing and will definitely haver another go at it, a very simple technique which adds a new dimension. Thanks for looking x
Amended to add I am also going to enter this card for the Guest DT call for Belles n Whistles Blog http://ropchallenge.blogspot.com/2009/06/guest-dt-call.html
