Challenge #11 at Cooking It Up! and a Design Team Call Out for You!

Happy Wednesday!
It's time for another challenge over at my Cooking It Up With Katie card recipe blog.

The recipe for this challenge is:
Something girly
Paper Piecing
At least 2 designer/patterned papers

I have a list of challenges that helped me with this

One Stop Craft had a sketch
Our Creative Corner wanted Something Old that's New Again, I used my Threading Water punch that's almost 2 years old but I still use it at least once a week.
Secret Crafter wanted a Multifold and I made one up as I went along, no template! LOL
Jacksonbelle wanted a New Fold too
Paper Play want a Birthday for someone Special
Alphabet Challenge were at P is for Pink
Bee Crafty wanted Stitching (I used Faux) and a digi image
Corrosive wanted Stitching too
Sophisticats wanted Stitching too
Die Cut Dreams had a recipe of 3 papers, 2 ribbons, 2 flowers and the added option of gems
Incy Wincy want you to Punch It Out
Practical Scrappers wanted Flowers
Crafty Angels wanted Fantastic Flowers
Little Paper Shop wanted Distressing
Tuesday Throwdown wanted Distressing too
Digital Tuesday wanted All Things Girly
Flourishes wanted "All About Me" with you using your favorite technique, product or color, I used all 3!

Image - Short Petal Flower digital image. Ann is sponsoring this challenge so you have a chance of a prize for entering.
Paper - My Minds Eye Laundry Line
Flowers - Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment - Joanns Craft Essentials

The card fastens with two brads and a ribbon

Hopefully you can see that the flowers are paper pieced in two colors of pink, distressed with chalk ink and a rose added to the center.

The flower panel opens up to reveal the place for a message.

I hope you liked this card and I'd love to see your take on my challenge over at Cooking It Up With Katie.
Also I'm looking for a little help in the creations for the challenge and so I'm putting out a call for a small Design Team. All the details can be found on the challenge blog :)
