Little Red Wagon #23

It is Wednesday, and that means another challenge over at Little Red Wagon. My BFF made this awesome sketch and challenged us to use this when creating our cards this week. I love sketches. Here is my take on the sketch! Today is my dad's birthday, so I used the sketch to make him a special card. All the papers are scraps from my stash. I didn't cut into a full sheet of anything. The letters are old ones from Scenic Route (also not a brand new sheet). Ribbon is from American Crafts and I added some detail with a white pen and did some paper piercing.

I used a digital stamp that I had saved (not sure where I got it from, sorry). I printed it on a piece of white cardstock and then I printed it three more times on my pattern papers. I cut the images out of the patterns and adhered them on top of the image on the white using foam adhesive. I love to paper piece and thought I would try it out with this image. I love how it turned out.

When I was surfing the net the other night, I came across this challenge at Moxie Fab World so I thought I would enter my card there as well. I love some of the samples they show using the paper piecing. I hope you find time to play along with Joanne's challenge. Be sure to check out what the rest of the team has created by clicking on their names on my sidebar!

Oh ya, Happy Birthday DAD!
