Kraftin' Kimmie's Paper Piecing Challenge!!

Well, it's that time again! Time for another Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge and this week, our lovely and very talented Nicole is the hostess for this week. She wants us to do some paper piecing on our projects. I love paper piecing, I think it looks so cool (just look at the cards the other Krafty Girls have made). My problem is that I usually forget to do it!! Anyway, I enjoyed paper piecing the little girls' dress and the flower on her hat on this very sweet Cheryl Alger image. This one is called 'Butterflies Flutter By' and I just love it. It works for so many different card occasions. You can use it for a little girl or for a big girl. Who wouldn't be thrilled to get a card with this little gal on it? You can find this Cheryl Alger creation at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.

I coloured this image and then paper pieced her outfit. I cut it out using my oval large scallop Nesties. I used some gorgeous Cosmo Cricket Pixie-licious patterned papers, matted onto some teal card stock. I put a strip of the same paper as I used on her dress and flower across the front, using some more teal as a border on it. I punched out a strip of orange and placed it down the left side, then I stamped the sentiment and punched it out using the same orange. I added a couple of punched out butterflies and placed them in the top corners after putting some clear gems on them. That's it, done!
