Delightful Challenges

** Please scroll down for this week's Pretty Patterns challenge **
** Really.  I want you to see my card.  Pleeeease.**

Hi there!  Thanks for coming back for this week's challenge at Delightful Challenges which is....

Use your scraps

This is always a great challenge, because we all know that scraps are always around!  So I created my card with a quilt in mind.  I don't know why I would think quilt when playing with a snail image, but hey, it worked for me.  This sweet little image is Sandy the Snail.



I did use a great sketch from Clean & Simple Stamping  and this also fits the challenge (in my opinion) at CASual Fridays for paper piecing.

I hope you decide to join us this week to create a bunch of lovlies while making your scrap stash a little smaller.

Supplies:
Image: Sandy the Snail
Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Black, Yo-Yo Yellow
Paper: Citrus Matstack (DCWV)
Copics: BG05, RV10, RV13, YG00, YG03, YR04

Tools: Apron Lace border punch (Fiskars), Oval cutters (CM)
Embellishments: blue buttons (my stash)
