No Coloring Here!

Wow, Tuesdays masquerading as Mondays are always bumpier than I anticipate. It's like the shorter work week makes everyone panic. Good thing I have stamping to come home to!

This month's challenge on the A Muse Lounge is called "The No Coloring Zone." The challenge is to make a card without using coloring tools. I thought paper-piecing would fit the bill, and used some of my favorite A Muse papers (and one by Little Yellow Bicycle) to make up a small scene on my square card.


















I used three stamps, Clouds, Long Grass, and A Warm Hello, and hand-cut a piece of wood-grain paper to make my tree trunk. The sun was punched out of a piece of Little Yellow Bicycle Sharon Ann Baby Safari.

Have a great day!
