Paper piecing over at Take the Pixie challenge!

It's time for a new challenge over at the Take the Pixie Challenge and this week we want to see you do some...

Paper Piecing!


So I used this cutie called "I is for In the Sack" from the 15 Days of Christmas collection...


This little rag doll is sweet, huh?!  That sack is just perfect for paper piecing and I added the shadows to it with my copcs - here's a close up...



I used the sweet mini stars paperand the sentiment is from the 'Contemporary Christmas' paper collection by Cupcake Cards & Crafts (you can get it here) and the background paper is from the My Minds Eye 12 Days of Christmas paper pad (from Quixotic Paperie here) with my fave Marianne D Creatables snowflake dies (here).  I can't remember where I got that snowflake felt border from but I sprayed it with a spray on adhesive and sprinkled it generously with Glamour Dust along with the stars on the sack so it really glitters in real life!


Get more paper piecing inspiration over at the Take the Pixie Challenge blog!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:
