I had never made a "Spring" card before, so although it was a bit of a challenge for me this week it was also fun to try something different. I printed the image on DP and then printed it again twice on white cardstock. Michu was cut out and paper pieced onto the DP. I added stitching for his whiskers with DMC floss and then put his paws (which were again cut out) on with dimensionals. The red DP was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder and then sanded so the white came through. I really like how this turned out.
Be sure to visit the rest of the DT (links are on the left side) as I know they will have some wonderful eye candy to share with you as well. We'd love to have you join in on our challenges over at Paper Craft Planet ~ they are every Saturday and you still have until tomorrow night to get in on the current challenge where the lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher to the store.
Be sure to visit the Soft Pencil store to pick up those last minute Valentine's Day images!
