P for Paper Piecing

Good Morning. So nice to have you stop by and visit today. It has been a while since I have posted anything. I got hit with one of those summer colds last week and have not been in my craft room in what feels like forever.

There is still 1 week left for the current ABC Christmas Challenge where the theme is
P for Paper Piecing.

This is the card that I had intended to share last week but I did not get it finished in time for the start of the challenge so I am sharing it for the mid way reminder instead.

I bought this sweet little Mo Manning Elf  with the full intention that  I would be paper piecing the Christmas bauble. This time around, I have coloured her up in traditional holiday colours and used some patterned papers from  a couple of seasonal Basic Grey collections for both the background and the paper piecing.

This is a 6 inch square card. The image is quite large and really stands on its own. All I needed to finish it off was a little sentiment

I hope that you will join us for the challenge.
