The Shape of Things to Come.

It isn't really the shape of things to come of course but I couldn't think of another title for my shaped card. Don't be surprised if you see a lot of paper piecing in the future ...I'm slightly obsessed again. I won this Digi recently at Happileigh Scrapin. As soon as I saw this little birdhouse I thought shaped card, and paper piecing. It was a dream to paper piece. I did a little shading with vanilla promaker and cut a flower from scraps of the paper....each of these little roses are quicker and easier to make...well the say practice makes....I'll get to perfect eventually lol.  (A wink to my sisters here).

This card will be going off to my swap partner before the end of the month, but I'll be making another for myself I'm sure.
