I am going to be brutally honest with this post. I saw the Embellish Magazine Paper Piecing challenge and thought to myself . . . this is not for me. I just don't have the time this weekend for tedious cutting and pasting. Then, lo and behold, Sophie needed a boy birthday card and the theme was camo! Funny how things work out.
I started with an olive green textured base and then free hand cut different shades of green from the scrap box. I used Spellbinder Label 1 dies for the sentiment stamped with SU Always Artichoke and Alphabet Soup. Adding the brass snaps seemed to be a great military finishing touch. (btw it was also my bit of yellow) Sophie really liked the stamp I chose. She said the Happy Birthday was camouflaged just like the card. Gotta love the stuff that girl comes up with!
Much to my surprise, this was a FUN card to make. I really enjoyed cutting all the shapes and fitting them together. It was like doing a puzzle. Thank You Embellish Mag for the challenge! If I hadn't seen it, I don't think I would have know what to do about the camo theme - lol.
