Welcome to our fortnightly challenge at

Our challenge is to use "Paper Piecing" and we are sponsored by

I am becoming a big fan of paper piecing.  I recently did another card using this technique.  I love to color but sometimes you just can't get the look you would like using your markers.  Using some designer papers increases your options when coloring clothes or anything else.

I can never seem to have enough birthday cards in my stash either.  I have a few friends with birthdays coming up so I will be making a few more of these soon. 

I am again using some water coloring.  I so love the Color Burst by Ken Oliver.  I am a huge fan.  The colors are so vibrant and easy to create.  I used a resist technique on this.  The stamp is a background I have had since I started crafting and I just love the butterflies.  Unfortunately, I don't know who makes it.  I bought it at Archiver's but they are no longer here.  It is probably Stampendous if you are looking for it. 

When I added the colors, I found that some of the stamp did not make it but I liked how it looked...making it look old and distressed.  Adding the antique butterfly seemed to add to that look.

For the sentiment I cut it out several times and then added the new Tim Holtz Deco Sheets.  My sister Rebecca ordered them some time ago and they were finally released.  I got to use mine first.  She is so sweet to get me some when she got hers.

This is also the first time I got to use my doily die from Our Daily Bread.  I only used a section of is a whole circle.

I hope you have enjoyed my card and it has inspired you to put on your crafting tiara and join us in the challenge.  Don't forget to check out all the fabulous inspiration for you at CWWC.

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day.
