Hello Friend

Hello Friend

Just playing today, inspired by Pinterest and some new stamps!  I found a pin that led me to this Lift Challenge and I loved the paper-pieced chevron-like design that the ladies were presenting, so I pulled out my new Bazzill Vintage Lace paper pad and made up my little panel with these pretty papers.  Then this morning my order from Winnie & Walter arrived, including the popular The Big, the Bold, and the Happy set, so this is its inaugural stamping.  I decided to stamp it on vellum and attach it to my pieced strip, and then I added this Hero Arts Jeweled Flower.  

As always, thanks so much for stopping by - enjoy your weekend!

ETA: I'd like to add this card to the Hip on Handwriting challenge at Moxie Fab World.

Wow, that is fabulous. I love those strips in that chevron pattern. What a great way to use up some scraps, too. How wide are the strips? I think I need to try this technique.

I love this patchwork type chevron pattern Lin and the patterned papers work perfectly together. The sentiment on the vellum is also a great finishing touch. Thank you for the lovely comment. x
