Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge 81!! Paper piecing!

Well, hello everyone!! (I wish I could come up with a few novel greetings for my posts, I feel very boring!). Well, as the title suggests, the challenge for this week is to do some paper piecing on your card. I love paper piecing, but usually forget about doing it. The lovely and very talented Donna Wardle is our hostess for this week, make sure you go and check out her work, it's worth the effort.

Today I have used Kraftin' Kimmie's Rainy Day Miles as I thought I would like to paper piece his umbrella. I used some DCWV Safari Kids matstack. I used some polka dotted paper for the umbrella and after colouring and cutting out Miles with my Circle Nesties, I then made a frame in Poppy Parade using Inverted Scallop Circles. I used some more of the polka dot paper on the top and some glittery blue on the bottom, then a strip of green glittery lettered paper in the middle. I backed that piece with some more Poppy Parade, which I used a border punch on at the bottom. I made a flag for my sentiment, using Wild Wasabi and sat a cute little froggie on the edge. The patterned paper is matted onto some more Poppy Parade, then some white and the card base is also Poppy Parade. As you can tell, I LOVE P. Parade and I will have to 'collect' a stash of it before S.U. takes it away again.

O.K., now it's up to you. We want to see your paper pieced creations and don't forget to use a Kraftin' Kimmie stamp if you can, so that you can be in the running to win the Lilybelle stamp, which is what Donna has used on her fabulous card!!

So make sure you link your creations up to Kraftin' Kimmie's Challenge Blog for a chance to win and so we can all check out your 'stuff'.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and week.
