{ Paper piecing }

It is my turn to host this week's challenge at Embellish-It Scrapbooking. Create unique accents by stamping on patterned paper and cutting out. Pretty simple. I stamped the flowers (Kim Hughes) and the birds (Hero Arts). I used October Afternoon and SEI patterned paper. The white notecard I got at Paper Source and I embossed it with Cuttlebug embossing folder. I colored the branch with Prismacolor pencils. It would be wonderful if you could play. The keyword for the challenge is FC2. Please use this keyword when uploading your project in the gallery here, and post a link to your upload in this thread so we can see what beautiful work you've done! This week's challenge winner will receive a prize - you can see it here.
