For Teacher Girl

I am delighted to announce that I have been asked to be a guest designer for Cute Card Thursday for the month of October.  The theme for this week is Paper Piecing.

Card Recipe
Card Blank - 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".
Mo Manning Digital Image - For Teacher Girl.
Doodlebug Design Inc Design Paper - Autumn Kit.
Martha Stewart Border Punch - Grass.
Embellishments from own stash.
This image was coloured in using Copic markers.

Hints and Tips
To paper piece with a digital image I first printed the image onto a piece of photo copy paper.  I then sprayed my scraps of design paper with a temporary repositional adhesive and stuck them onto the photo copy and ran it through the printer again.  Doing it this way means you get perfect placement of the scraps of design paper and you won't need to use a whole sheet of design paper.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Mo's Digital Challenge:  Challenge #156 B is For (basket, buttons and a bow).
Make It Monday Challenge: Challenge #110 Anything Goes.
Daring Cardmakers: Colour Challenge October.
Cupcake Craft Challenges: Challenge #213 Autumn.
