A Kiss From the Sun To You

Hello my friend!  Thank you for stopping by!  It is a beautiful sunny day out and that inspired my bright card today.  I was also inspired to use the paper-piecing technique, which I always seem to use!  Love paper-piecing.  Well, as you know Cath over at the Moxie Fab World has that particular challenge up and this is my contribution. 

Started with a cream card base and adhered some delightful paper from Echo Parks A Walk in the Park. 

Cut a patterned paper strip and adhered a border punched strip, stamped my image and paper-pieced the branch and the birds.

Using stickers from the pack, created a banner with twine up in the corner.

Tied around some Orange Zest Twill tape and stamped my sentiment in black.

I hope you enjoyed and be sure to stop back tomorrow for Tiffany Doodles Blog Hop!  You don't want to miss it!
