A Baby Girl Card...



I love paper piecing (Surprised aren't you? :) )

Making something out of a few bits of leftover paper has never lost it's appeal to me. Neither has buying patterned paper at every given opportunity...after all...the leftover paper bits have to come from somewhere.

This congratulations card for a new baby girl is my latest paper pieced card...another from all those bits of paper!
