Well, hello friends! Hope all is well?!...I couldn't be anymore happy right now! A little while back Virginia had asked a few of us, if we would like to be a Guest Designer for her next challenge. Honestly, I had to reread her message because I couldn't really believe what I was reading! lol Me?!...A Guest Designer for the next challenge?!...Seriously?!...Yeah, it was pretty much like that! lol After knowing this was no joke, I was honored to accept her invite and totally happy! ;) Thank you again, Virginia!!! :)
So, the challenge is all about Pattern Paper! Which, I focused on Paper Piecing. And if you know me, you know I don't always do much of paper piecing. Though, this is one of the reasons I love Virginia View's Challenges! These challenges push me to play around with things more and also to experiment with new things. All while having fun! ;) Okay, okay. Here's my card!
Well, that's my card. When I thought of paper piecing, I instantly thought of the Ori Kami Altenew set. The images in the set I think happen to be perfect for paper piecing. And I think it's something anyone can do! ;) To start, I stamped my image (in case, the butterfly) on several different papers. Then one by one, I cut each of them out. After, I had to do some thinking, as into what papers I wanted for what pieces. Once figuring that out, I proceeded to cut the pieces. Then assembled my pieces together to make my butterflies. And lastly, added them to my card, which I only chose to 'pop up' the middle one. (*note: I did lay out my butterflies first, to see where and how I wanted them. And I also, stamped on my sentiment before adhering my butterflies, to be on the safe side. If my sentiment would have been stamped crooked/smeared/etc. I would of had started all over! lol) To finish the whole card off, I added some sequins. So, tell me what you think?!!...
You'll wanna be sure to head on over to Virginia's View Challenge and see all the Guest Designers and some amazing inspiration! I sure hope you'll join us?!!...Hope to see you there! :)
Thank you for stopping by!
Enjoy your day!
