Crafty Emma's Store Challenge - Spots and Stripes

I'm very happy today (despite still feeling horrible with this nasty cold!) as it is my turn to pick the Challenge theme for this week's CES Challenge. If you are a regular visitor to my blog you will know how much I love my patterned papers and spots and stripes in particular so it will be no surprise to you that I chose...

'Spots and Stripes'

I have fallen in love with all the papers in the new My Mind's Eye pads, the colours are beautiful, the patterns are original and varied and there is an abundance of stripey and spotty papers in each pad...heaven!!!

I sewed three strips of different MME patterned papers together to cover my card base and wrapped them with Baker's twine. I cut a pinking circle from Kraft and topped this with some ledger paper I had stamped with a Hero Arts sentiment and sewed around the edges before adding to the card with foam pads.

I then stamped and coloured the adorable Whiff of Joy 'Ben' and paper pieced his T-Shirt and Skateboard and shoes. I added him to my sentiment circle with foam pads and finished the card with a punched star and a couple of buttons.

I had so much fun making this card. I loved doing the paper piecing and the image was so lovely to colour. As well as being my DT card for the CES Challenge I would like to enter this in to the latest Whiff of Joy Challenge as the theme is paper piecing.

I hope you will be able to join us for this week's CES Challenge. The prize for the winner is a Sugar & Spice 6x6 Paper Pack

Make sure you check out the blog for lots of inspiration from our Guest Designer and the very talented DT.
Have a great Saturday!
