FTTC240 Paper Piecing          

Take a moment a leave a comment on our talented Friends of Flourishes Team member blogs and our guest designer for the month...
Here's my paper pieced card for today:
 I went super simple with super bright and fun paper! I used the That's a Wrap set to create this easy and quick birthday card. 

 I stamped the bow twice using Versafine Black. I hand cut everything out right along the stamped edge. I added a little color to the border edge using a Spiced Marmalade Distress Marker.

On the inside I added a few leftover paper scraps and stamped the birthday sentiment from the Sentimental Favorites set.


  1. Man alive, Jenny, this looks fantastic! I love the way you layered and offset multiple images of the bow to get a fuller looking bow, and the dark orange edging is beautiful.

  2. Wow this is bright and children would totally love this!! Beautifully done!

  3. Love this card Jenny! Such bright and fun colours and I love the way you layered and offset the bow image and highlighted the edges with marker.

  4. Oh such a great color combo! So very pretty!!!

  5. Cheerful and so how you added to the edges to make it "pop"!!

  6. What a gorgeous combination of patterns and I LOVE that you double layered the bow! Beautiful card, Jenny!!

  7. Awwww... what a happy feeling birthday card Jenny! Love what you did with the paper piecing. Lovin' that colour scheme too - super fun card this week!

  8. What a fabulous card Jenny!! I love how you colored in the accents as well after paper piecing. Beautiful!

  9. Jenny this is so cute! Love it! :) Nancee
