Paper Piecing @ 4Crafty Chicks

Well today marks my final guest designer project at 4 Crafty Chicks, I have loved working with these wonderfully talented ladies!!! They have made me really channel my inner creativity to create projects during my guest spot. Please make sure to follow 4 Crafty Chicks and these ladies on their blogs if you are not as you will be inspired Lori, Leanne, Melissa, & Tamie.

Now I hardly ever paper pierce, when it comes to sewing on my projects its "faux" all the way! So I was kinda in a rut trying to find my mojo for this project, whatever was I going to do.  Well I started doing a little blurfing on the internet and found a card to "case"- little did I know it happened to be one of Melissa's masterpieces that inspired me (thanks Melissa).  You can see her card here.

So I did a little retail therapy and got this new gorgeous paper I used by Authentique, it's a 6 x6 bundle and called Gathering.  This is my first time using papers from this company, but I can say I am in love!!! I used sold cardstock from CTMH in sunset and inked my edges with sorbet ink (don't have sunset pad yet). I pierced everything around the edges, my sentiment is a freebie I picked up from Sentimental Sundays called Elena's sentiments. Now I added some flowers using my fave Die-Namics Mini Rose die and the black leaves are from my EK Success border punch.

Come join the challenge this week at 4 Crafty Chicks as there is a great prize up for grabs and while your there leave some love for the girls!!!
