Tuesday Throwdown #279: Piece It Together

Good morning, friends! Time for a new theme over at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge.  This week were are playing "Piece It Together" and we are sponsored by Robyn's Fetish. I picked this stamp called "Poinsettia Basket" and made a birthday card by piecing together some scrap patterned paper.

I stumbled upon (literally!) a very very old 6x6 pad by My Mind's Eye and used some bits of scraps for the flowers, basket and bow. As for the itty bitty leaves - attempting to paper-piece those would have landed me in an asylum. They got the Copic treatment, instead. By dressing up the poinsettias in a  non-festive outfit, we can use them all year 'round!

Now it's your turn to create a project based on this week's theme: "Piece It Together". For ideas and inspiration, take a peek at what the rest of the DT members have made. Remember to link up your project at the Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog by 3pm Pacific / 11pm UK on Monday, February 8th.  And the most important requirement: Have Fun!

  14. Hello wonderful Asha! Hanging my head in shame at being so behind in commenting; life’s been supremely hectic, what with work, travel (which involved work…crazy amounts!), DT commitments (which I’ve fallen behind in, too) and a plethora of other stuff! I hope that my ‘thought bubbles of love’ for all your cards have reached you, because I send them frequently! Starting with a fresh slate with a goal to staying caught up…Your basket of polka dot flowers has me wearing a bright smile. Paper-piecing extraordinaire!

  15. Hi Asha! This is a very cute and happy birthday card! I do love the paper pieced flowers and the pretty layout. Thanks so much for joining my challenge this week :)

  22. Not only is paper piecing fun, but it adds a wow factor to an image and it's a grist way to use scraps (I've got tons). Beautiful result achieved and the ribbon in the corner is a nice touch too.
