come on, get happy...

I was coming here to post my card from this weeks Cornish Heritage Farms Summer Stamp Star Design Challenge. CHF is hosting a 5 week challenge with chances each week to win $50 worth of stamps. Lots of fun challenges planned.

Last weeks challenge was coloring. Using the Partridge Family as inspiration this is the card I came up with....

This weeks challenge is paper piecing. Hello! Love paper piecing! Here is my card for this week. To create the leaves I used the wing part of the bird. I wanted to create an open beak on the bird as opposed to just one triangular beak, so I simply cut out an extra beak and added it on. Now that cute little Mocha Chica bird can say "hello".

and a close-up of the bird, branches and leaves...


Have a great Monday!
