Wee Memories Paper Piecing Challenge - Edited Version

Hi Everyone:

I just wanted to share this challenge with you and the card that I made today. The challenge was to use Paperpiecing in our creation. Here is what I came up with. I used the only Hero Arts Flower stamp that I have right now. I thought that maybe I had thought of every possible way to use this stamp, but seems like the possibilities are endless. I stamped my image on patterned papers and just layered them one after the other. I also hand cut the other flowers from some "Daisy Bucket" paper and I am so happy how it turned out. The pic isn't the greatest but that is what you get for taking pictures at night. Lol.

And here is a close up of that beautiful Hero Arts stamped flower!!

Card Recipe
Pattern Paper: Daisy Bucket
Cardstock: Stampin'Up & Recollections
Stamps: Hero Arts CG285/Hand Drawn Flower & CL342/Everyday Sayings
Inks: Ranger Distress Inks/Peeled Paint, Staz On/Black
Ribbon: Unknown (From A Friend - Thanks Ceal!)
Embellishments: Pearls/ e.Company/Prima

I can't remember the last time that I paperpieced anything. So this was a great challenge. This card is being submitted into the New Hero Arts Monthly Challenge also. They have a great challenge on this month to use flowers in your card creations. That is easy enough for sure and certain because they have loads of flower stamps to choose from. I have to get more because you will be sick of seeing me use this one! Lol. Though I try to use it a diffrent way each time. Lol. That is why stamping is so great! You can always change it up!  

There are other themes as well for this months HA contest and you can check it all out here. Be sure to play along for your chance to win some yummy prizes. 

I am so excited to share that I received "Honorable Mentions" for the card that I submitted to the "Playdate Cafe' Challenge. I was so surprised and happy! Look forward to playing along again soon. So I am proud to display this wonderful badge in my sidebar.

There are so many challenges out there to play along with and to inspire you.  Tomorrow I will be sharing my card that I made for the "Stampin Sisters In Christ" challenge and there is still time to play. Thanks for dropping bye and I look forward to seeing you again soon.  

Hugs & Blessings
