Designed2Delight Saturday Challenge

It is time for the weekly Designed2Delight Saturday Challenge hosted by one of the Design Team members.  This week Katie Tate wants us to PAPER PIECE!  Yea, that is so much fun to do!!

It is also our monthly CHRISTMAS / WINTER challenge. So, paper piece a D2D image and create a winter or Christmas project. Yes, we are requiring a D2D image this week.

Seems odd to make a Christmas card at this time of year, but I rose to the challenge with this D2D 'Mitten" image:
I flipped the image for one of the mittens and printed on some wild DCWV Christmas cardstock I have.  I'm not so sure I would wear mittens like these, but I think they make for a fun card!

The background paper was made by brayering "Fired Brick" Distress ink onto a matte piece of cardstock.  Then I used a Stampin Up present image and stamped it using bleach.

The sentiment is a freebie by Tlc Creations.  Paulette is quite prolific in her craft and generous!  She always has something she is giving away on her blog.  She also has lots of sentiments for sale.

Challenges I'm entering are:
Wag 'n Whiskers - stitches
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in May
Creative Card Crew - anything goes
Digital Tuesday - add some texture
Paper Sundaes - pop it up
Moving Along with the Times - holidays
2 Sisters -  anything goes

Digi Doodle Shop's Best - anything goes
I Did it Creations - anything goes
Truly Scrumptious - anything goes

I hope you will consider joining in on the paper piecing challenge.  Also going on at Designed2Delight is the weekly progressive FREE digi challenge.  This week is FUN FLOWERS!

Fantastic design and effects! Love the colors and the bleaching. I like those mittens in those colors, too, but like you, doubt I could wear them myself. Thanks for joining us at DDSB. Hugs, dj
