Milk Coffee DT Call Card #2

You got it! I made another card to submit to the Milk Coffee DT Call Paper Piecing Challenge. Yes I’m really in love with their digi’s and this DT call gave me a chance to really play around with them and I had so much fun with the paper piecing challenge. I have to say I did have a tough time figuring out with sentiment to add to it since the image isn’t of any particular holiday/occasion. Can’t really say “HAPPY LAUNDRY!” But you have to say this image is SUPER CUTE tho! I was deciding between a couple other digi’s I have on hand, but this one was just too darn cute to not use!

Oh, I guess I forgot to mention, this image is called Sally and her Laundry Basket. She is actually a freebie on the Milk Coffee blog here. Don’t just stop there tho, there are lots of great freebies available and they’re all gorgeous!

You can’t really tell I used the same papers on the dress and the background, but on the last picture you should be able to see it a little better. If there is one thing I learned about paper piecing from this challenge…shade the paper…it makes such a huge difference than just piecing a dp…it makes the paper blend right into the image so much better! I LOVE IT!

Milk Coffee DT Call

Milk Coffee Stamps is having a DT call and when I found out, I was jumping for joy and whipped out one of the favorite digi’s I have on my computer 🙂 I used the digi Annabelle. Isn’t she adorable!? The theme for the challenge was paper piecing so I used the same polka dot pattern paper for her dress and balloons. I honestly have to admit paper piecing is NOT my forte, I normally avoid it at all costs. But for the sake of this DT call it’s gotta be done! I gotta say I really love how it turned out and who knows, I might actually make a second one with another fab digi in my stash!

FINGERS CROSSED!
