Designed 2 Delight Team Challenge - Paper Piecing - Christmas/Winter theme

It's time for another challenge from the Design Team at Designed 2 Delight.
This week the challenge was set by me!
It is also our regular Winter/Christmas card week and added to that is my challenge of "Paper Piecing".
This is one of my favorite techniques and with digital stamps it is super easy to do!

Challenges:
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes or Your Favorite...
Digi Doodles Shop - Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes
Truly Scrumptious - Anything Goes
I Did It - Anything Goes
Reasonable Ribbon - Anything Goes (with ribbon)
Lexi's - Spots and/or Stripes
Desert Island Crafts - Pick 3 (I chose square card, image, patterned paper, die cut)
Digital Tuesday - Texture
My Time To Craft - Use a Die Cut
Stamps R Us - Going Digital
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in May (20 challenges max)
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas - Use Some Ribbon


Card Recipe:
Image - For The Birds
Paper - The Paper Studio Happy Holidays
Paint - Tulip 3D Puffy Paint
Glitter - Glamour Dust Crystal
Doily Die - Italian Flourish by Cheery Lynn Designs
Sentiment - Walmart
Snowflake Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Snowflakes - Crafts Etc



Another favorite thing when making "snow" is for me to use Puffy Paint (the kind you heat and it puffs up). Before heating I sprinkle a fine layer of glitter to add a little extra sparkle.
I hope you'll get creating with your tiny scissors and join in with our Paper Piecing Winter/Christmas challenge this week at Designed 2 Delight
