Gifts & Balloons

Just about in time with this challenge card too! The Simple Doodles challenge currently is:

Paper Piecing

I've used acetate for the front of the card - dotted the line around the edge (so you can see it) with a Sharpie marker.

I've paper pieced the gift and balloons which is a Simple Doodles digi image - printed two images the same size onto different papers and then cut them out! I've used papers from Funky Hand - Shabby Saturday download and printed them off at approx A5 size as I wanted a small pattern.

I've added a little glitter to the spots on the gift and have used wire for the balloon strings as there was no way I was trying to cut round the drawn strings!! Quite a simple card, but I like it!

Pop over to Simple Doodles on Saturday for the new challenge where you'll see my Guest Designer post as I am a Guest Designer for March - whooo-hooo!

  • Backing papers: Shabby Saturday download from Funky Hand
