Just a Note...

Hi all!  Happy Sunday to you!  Hope you all have been enjoying your weekend.  I am happy to say that the sun is back out here and I have been enjoying a beautiful day, so much so that I just realized that I needed to hurry up and get this post in before the time on one of the challenges for my latest creation expires!  Yikes! LOL

For this lovely Sunday evenings post I chose Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #112 and The Color Throwdown Challenge #136.  This is the one that I am hoping to get posted before the time expires.. 8-)

I Stamped my Flourishes image onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black and tried my hand at some paper piecing for the very first time and colored up the rest with my trusty Copics! I had been wanting to try paper piecing for  a while now and thought it was time to finally give it a go, I think it turned out pretty well. 8-).. I paper pieced & matted up my image with Brandy Buffingtons lovely Digi DP featured at Two Peas in a Bucket and added in a little bit of Kraft cardstock from my stash as well.  My Flourishes Sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto a layered little eyelet circle that I made up with my Eyelet Circles Nesties set and then popped it up with some dimensionals.  I added a bit of Ribbon from Michaels, a cute little button with hemp twine and Voila, there you have it my very first paper pieced Just a Note card.   

Hope you are all having a lovely evening & thanks so much for visiting! 8-)
