Paper Piecing, Penguins, and Possibly...

The most glitter and bling EVER!!

This week’s challenge for Woodware USA is to use GLITTER and BLING in your creations. Well, sometimes I feel like I came out of the womb destined to be glittery! And, the way I find little specks all over my house, I think that I still haven’t lost my glitz!

I have used the adorable set—Penguin Fun for my card today, and it is a fun one! I also coupled it with some marvelous Christmas paper from My Mind’s Eye. I’ve also greatly distressed as many edges as I could! We hope that you will join us and play along!!

In addition, I am entering the above card into two challenges this week:

Next, I have my card from last week’s challenge—paper piecing. My usual day to post was this past Saturday, but I decided to just run the two together. If I could have paper pieced the girl’s skin, I would have. Everything else is paper-pieced using Green at Heart by Basic Grey. I just love that paper, and I was able to use my scraps on this one! The cardstock colors are Old Olive and Rich Razzleberry by Stampin’ Up. I used an EK Success border punch and some SU ribbon and punches.

A close up of my paper piecing frenzy...please excuse the smudge! In my haste, I didn't look closely at my fingers!
