KKS Challenge #81

Today's Kraftin Kimmie Stamps challenge is to use paper pieceing on our cards. I seldomly do this but I do love the look of it.

I chose to use Mandy from our Girls rock, May release. I pulled some old Stampin Up paper from my stash. I thought these soft mellow colours worked well with this yoga pose.

So I stamped Mandy on the DP with my new memento inked that I just bought this last week at Hobby Lobby. Works sooo much better then just reinking my old one. Nice dark, crisp lines. Love it!!
Anyhoo, I carefully trimmed out her yoga pants and shirt and glued them in place. I used my lace fiskars border punch, added a bit of white ribbon and tied a loose knot. Added a flower from my stash and a few pearls. (all from the dollar store)
Be sure to check out the Kraftin kimmie challenge blog to see what the rest of the Krafty girls came up with this week.

Take care and have a fabulous weekend!!  I'm off to my eldest daughter's 7th Birthday party this afternoon. We're going bowling. Strike!!! :)

Such a beautiful creation, Angie! Love the way you paper pieced her pants! The colours are so bright and springy! Love it!

Have a great time at the bowling alley today! Hope Dylan has a great day and I hope you have lots of wine to recover with later this evening....heehee.

I love this, Angie!! It looks so pretty with just a couple of colours, gives it a different look!! The flower is a lovely touch and your paper piecing of Mandy's pants is perfect!! Hey, I just realized, we both used the same border punch!! Great card!!
