Paper Pieced Flowers.

 Morning -Mojo popped in for a flying visit yesterday and I had a play made two cards and finished one WIP.

I have made a birthday card for a family friend I met at Grandsons birthday party and since then she has always left lovely comments on my cards on FB and I also wanted to join in the Challenge For Kath at Allsorts using paper pieced flowers.


I used a beautiful Chocolate Baroque stamp,a little ladybird stamp from a Pink Frog set and stamped sentiment was a craft mag freebie.Leaves and Ladybird are watercoloured.


I used two different P.papers as the first ones were a bit pale so I used both and offset them, stencils from Stencil Girl and Creative Expressions.

Perfect flowers for paper piecing with the beautiful papers. I love your background, too. It's so very sad about Kath. I didn't know her, but it's evident she was loved.

*Vicki* said...

Oh wow Carol, your flowers are so pretty and elegant on your stenciled background! I love the look with the different papers you've used for the piecing too! I know exactly what you mean about MOJO coming and going...I struggle with it and try to work through it...sometime successful, sometimes not. I think I have too many things going on in my head and can't focus to make something! LOL! Sending HUGS
