Let's Eat !


Every Tuesday one of the Design Team of TCP (The Cat's Pajamas) issues a challenge and this week Amy Rohl's challenge was to use paper piecing on your card.

I don't have my newly won A Beary Good Year set yet (see yesterday's post!) - so I used this cute dining penquin from the Gobble it Up set, paperpiecing the table cloth.

I used Labels Eight Nestabilities to frame him and my Top Note by SU (cut in half) for the background piece. The designer paper is Cosmo Cricket/Earth Notes. I used my Scor Pal to make a double frame around the edge and sponged it with Ranger Tea Dye Distress ink. Then I just stamped my sentiment and added the button knotted with twine!

Check out the challenge and load up yours here before the end of Feb. Maybe you'll be chosen the Swanky Stamper of the month - uh -- oh no - I'm going to be chosen Swanky Stamper of the month - forget I mentioned the contest ! LOL!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Ooo, LOVE this card! The table-cloth matching the side panel - stroke of genius! It's really very neat-o! I also love that you have those dry-embossed framing lines on this card - lots of great detail!
