Paper piecing challenge

Woohoo it's the weekend! I have been on vacation this week and although I didn't get everything done on my "to do" list I got quite a bit accomplished so that is always a good feeling.

This weeks challenge at Kraftin Kimmies is being hosted by the sassy Jessie and she wants to see some paper piecing on your card. This is always fun to do and I don't use it often enough so I was happy to join in.

I have used some foil papers I have had in my stash for quite awhile and just never knew what to do with them. The image is Natsuko and she is on a spellbinder die and also layered over a doily, I really like how it looks. A butterfly from Kays Kreative Korner and some flowers from WOC. I wanted to add a sentiment but wasn't sure who I wanted to give this card too so I am holding off for now. Ok, lets see how creative you can get and please make sure to use a Kraftin Kimmie image to be eligible to win the image Jessie chose for on her card this week.

That looks like shimmery material, rather than foil paper! Perfect effect and I love her matching eye shadow! Happy you had a good vacation :)
