Purr-fect together!

Good morning! Wednesday again- middle of the week already- and time for a fun new challenge at Creative Moments. This fortnight the theme is paper piecing, and we're sponsored by the fabulous All Dressed Up stamps, who very generously gave us some gorgeous images to use, this adorable stamp is called Purrrfect Together and is available here . There are actually 3 images, cat with bow, cat without bow and the sentiment so a real bargain at £1.50! To make my card I printed the cat-without-a bow twice, once onto the 'fence' dp and then on to blue spotted paper. The spotted cat is fussy cut and pieced over the image on the fence. The cat-with-bow, I printed onto white spotted paper, fussy cut and placed slightly overlapping the first cat. I then printed part of both images onto relevant scraps of paper so I could piece the ears and bow. printed the sentiment and die cut it with a tag die and added it to my card with a die cut bow and a little brad. No colouring so this was a quick and easy card to make!
We'd love to have you join us this fortnight, paper piecing is a fun and easy technique so why not give it a go? Of course you can always enter an 'anything goes' project if you don't fancy the paper piecing! Please take the time to visit the challenge blog at Creative Moments ,there's some beautiful examples of the paper piecing technique for you to enjoy created by my talented teamies!
