Feature Friday #22

Happy Friday!!!
WoW i seem to be saying that alot. these fridays are coming way too fast! LoL
Welcome to Feature Friday #22 with The Character Cafe. Today we have another technique challenge for you:
PAPER PIECING

For my card today i used the newly released Hillary Hippo image, isn't she a sweetie!! I printed her out twice, once on some flower dp from Close To My Heart and then on white cardstock. I colored in all the pieces i wanted colored with my copics first, then I cut out the flowered body from the dp and glued it to my white image. The hippo birthday sentiment is also included on one of the images. i just used my punch to separate it and added it to the top of my card. Paper piecing is so much fun, it's also a great way to use up some of that leftover dp you have laying around.

Now it's your turn, grab an image and paper piece away. Be sure to upload your creation to Mr. Linky on The Character Cafe blog before next Thurs. at Midnight. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Would you like more inspiration? Check out the DT that participated in this week's challenge on The Character Cafe blog. The rest of the DT have entered challenges around blogland using TCC images. you can find all their links on my sidebar.

Have a Terrific Day!!!

Hugs,
