"Appliqued Tree"

If you did not play along last week @ Designed 2 Delight and receive this image in your inbox, you can purchase it in Faith's digi shop and play along to receive the next freebie.

This was an awesome image to do paper piecing on!! The tree, trunk, hills and bird are all paper pieced onto a white back ground that I lightly sponged w/some distressed ink to give it a soft sky look. I then incorporated the colors and patterns thru out the rest of my card. I popped up the tree image to give it more attention, and finished it off w/some bling and buttons.

I really enjoyed making this card. For some reason "I just got it" this week. Maybe because I was w/my girlfriends this past Friday night doin' some scrappin (and gossiping) and was inspired. They are the BEST!! Love you ladies xoxoxo

Well, I hope you like the card this week. Hope you will leave a comment ~ I always appreciate them : )
