A PAPER PIECED BACKGROUND ON A SPRING THEMED CARD

The Saturday challenge at The Outlawz was to make a paper pieced background, and this is my entry:


To create my background, I printed some striped digital paper and cut it into squares.  The edges were inked and then I pasted them onto back dp.  A white gel pen was used to make the faux stitching.


The black birds on a branch is a diecut.

I also used black ribbon and a metal treble clef charm.


Thanks for visiting me today.
