Paper Piecing at The Crafty Pad

Firstly, my apologies for being absent for so long (again!) and a HUGE THANK YOU to my lovely Crafty Pad teamies Leesa and Dawn who have helped me out of a pickle this week, they really are so thoughtful and I owe them one! ;)

This week's new challenge at The Crafty Pad has been chosen by 'moi!' It's one of my favourite techniques, and that's challenge #179


(Not to be confused with paper piercing!)

Our fab sponsor this week is


with a £20 voucher to spend in their store for one lucky winner, chosen at random from our entries this week!

I won't bore you with details, but things have gone a bit messed up for me in the last couple of weeks and one of the consequences has been that my mojo has gone on extended hols so I am really struggling with my lack of creative skills and am somewhat disappointed with todays meagre offering...anyway, with my apologies, here it is:

A simple rocker card made using the fabTCP LOLLY POP image which I paper-pieced using Pink Petticoat digital papers.

I added some tiny gems to the droplets featured on the green top layer, and kept it simple with a kraft cardbase and the watermelon DPs. I added some cheesecloth, lime green ric rac and a simple birthday sentiment to finish, and will add the finished card to my 'cards needed in a hurry' box.

The other DT girls on Team B have some wonderful inspiration for you on the challenge blog, so please pop over and join in the fun this week.

I will enter my card into the following challenges:
