Simon Says........Create a Scene

Before we get started today, I just wanted to send out a huge thank you to all of you who took the time to comment on my last post.  I so enjoyed reading them!  

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog!

Hello!  This week our theme is "Create a Scene", and the team are all playing with products from Newton's Nook.  Having grown up with dachshunds, I thought I'd play with their Delightful Doxies clear set.

supplies: white, pink, yellow, Green Apple cardstock, rust Core'dinations cardstock, dps from MFT Lucky Prints paper pad, DieNamics Snow Drifts die, Newton's Nook Delightful Doxies, PTI cloud dies, Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares, Mini Misti

I don't do well coloring large areas, so I decided to make my scene by paper-piecing.  The dogs and balloons were stamped on colored cardstock, cut-out, and then popped above the background elements.  As you can see, I stamped the dogs on the background first so that I didn't have to cut out the teensy balloon strings.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!
