Delightful Challenges

Good Morning!  How are all of you doing?  Good!  I'm well, too.

Thanks for coming by to visit me for the Delightful Challenges and this week we're paper piecing.  I know there are some oops'es on my cards, but overall I'm pretty pleased with how it came out.  I kept fairly CAS and found the sketch on Mojo Monday to be perfect.

I started with the Circular Tree Background stamp and the printed it a few more times on different digi papers from the Spring Has Sprung and Pampered Pups digi paper packs.  Cut them out and then pieced accordingly.  Then I added a sentiment that I punched out with tag punches.  OK, so my bow is a bit too big, but I like it.  heehee

Amazing! I love the simplicity in appearance, but know that it's the embossing and piecing details that make it so fabulous.
