Pierced and Pieced


FINALLY, I'm through with the order for children's and babies cards! I didn't even take any pictures - was just so tired of making and looking at them! Whew!
This is for Always Playing With Paper challenge. It's an inspiration challenge (see the picture here). The photo is just beautiful!!! Made me think of food. So what better image to use than a chef and birthday cake! Plus some of the colors in the bowls are blue and orange so those are the main colors I used for this. Everything on this little guy has been paper pieced. I used Ballet Blue and Pawistively DP. I love plaid so I'm really liking his little jacket! The image is Voila from SU. On the birthday cake and tray I used some Creative Inspiration Paints - they REALLY make it shine. I used Fairy Dust on the cake and Silver Frost on the tray. The orange background paper was paper pierced on the sides.

Hope everyone has a great weekend........

Thanks for stopping by..........

Orange and blue is such a fun color combo. I love how you pieced the chef jacket. Congrats on being the APWP winner this week!

I'm really disappointed that after all the talk about all the baby cards you were making that you didn't take any photos to share with use :-(
