Oh What Fun!

Hope you are all having a good day,

I have just made a card that is quite different for me. I have used patterned paper, a banner and paper pieced. Honestly, I really have plus I had a lot of fun creating this:


This was inspired by Tracey's card at Muse. I went with the kraft, the lay out and instead of a leaf, I added this fun banner. I cut a slit in the top of the mug so I could pierce my banner into the it. I have stamped the 'cool beans' in the centre of the mug but the rest has been paper pieced using paper I found that matched the banner.

I was going to make this card more CAS but decided to go with more patterns after I saw the latest 'Birthday' challenge at The Challenge. I loved all the patterns in the photo and I also used the colours as a base.

I am joining the The Fall Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with this card as my colours have an Autumn feel.

The sentiment stamp is from Happy Little Stampers. They have a new release out-check it out here.

Enjoy your day x

  28. Not sure if someone else has mentioned it but the CAS challenge for HLS is Paper Piecing, so this would be perfect!! Got quite a shock when I saw paper on your card. Such a fabulous CASE of Tracey's card and love the papers you used. Think you might have a winner on your hands.....
