Piecing Patterns

Hello Readers!

I just want to start by announcing that I am now part of the fabulous DT for the Brown Sugar Challenge Blog. I am so proud that I am part of such a talented group of gals from all over the world.
Thank you! 
The theme for this week here at Brown Sugar Challenge is BABY and thank you to our wonderful sponsor at Bugaboo Stamps. Feel free to stop over and have a look. They have some wonderful and cute products for any occasion!

Our sponsor for this week's
challenge: #154
Theme: Baby
I saw this adorable bow and heart and thought I must do some paper piecing.  It is a wonderful technique, easy, and has a nice subtle impact. To me, the little toddler was saying 'I'm sorry'. The way she is standing with her hands behind her back was just too much to resist a belated birthday card. 

The colors were brought out by the flower PP
in the background. It is sparkly but just couldn't capture it on camera.
The sentiment seems fitting for a little girl
who looks so remorseful.
You can see how the paper piecing shows so well
on the girl and the bears feet.
I would also like to enter the (PIN)spirational Challenge for this week. This photo is just too cute!! And I feel it fits perfectly with this adorable little girl... So innocent and kind!
Entering Challenge:
(PIN)spirational Challenge #144
 How to:
  1. Cut my base card to 4.5"x 6"
  2. Adhered blue PP to the base and set aside.
  3. Printed sponsor image out on floral PP paper.
  4. Fussy cut the collar, heart, bow, and teddy's feet. set aside.
  5. Printed out the sponsor image again this time on white 110lb. CS
  6. Colored image pulling colors out of the floral PP.
  7. Outlined the image panel with black marker
  8. Pieced the floral elements to the colored toddler then placed it on the card base.
  9. Ran a green strip of paper down the side of the card.
  10. Created a paper bow and glued it down on the card base.
  11. Stamped sentiment cut into a banner and added it to the card base.

That was it.. She is so cute, isn't she? Well that is it for me tonight I hope you have a great day and thank you for joining me here at TheGrandStampede. We will see you soon and please don't forget to leave a comment good, great or otherwise. Take care!

All the best,
