Little Birdie for Crafty Calendar Challenge

Hello peeps.
 Today's an exciting day - this is my first post as a 'Calendar Girl' ;D
No, I haven't been posing for photos with strategically placed teacakes: I have joined the lovely Design Team at Crafty Calendar Challenge (thank you ladies for the warm welcome)


This month's challenge is Anything Goes and is sponsored by
Robyns Fetish Digital Stamps 
Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More, a division of I Did It Creations, was created and is owned by Robyn Weinrib. Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.

So, for my DT inspiration card I have used the digistamp 'a little birdie told me'. 

I was struggling a bit with colouring him in so I decided to paper piece him instead.
He's printed onto plain white card and then several different Lili of the Valley papers (mostly Country Lady, the tree trunk is from Timeless Victorian). After cutting out all the different parts of the image and glueing them onto the white version I matted & layered onto another patterned paper and a 7"x7" card.
The sentiment was stamped with an Inkydoodles stamp and the ribbon and buttons are from my stash.


Crafty hugs,

  6. The paper piecing looks absolutely wonderful and I love the way you cut the sentiment up and added each word separately :-) A gorgeous design!
