YCU Challenge 14: Learning is Fun!

Hello Friends!

I am here today for this month's Young Crafters Unite Challenge! This time it's all about learning, so we are all using a technique that we've recently learned, or an old favorite :)

This week you get 2 sponsors! The always wonderful Simon Says Stamp
and me! :) 

So, here is my card. For my technique, I fell back on an old favorite, paper piecing. This is probably my favorite technique, (although I do love using Distress Inks and embossing!) I think I like it so much because it can really change the look and a feel of a stamp. For example, with my card it allowed me to create custom outfits for the little ladies :) I used the gingerbread girls from the Hey, Cookie set. Even though it's really a Christmas set, I thought, what the heck!

Be sure to join in the fun and check out all the other amazing inspiration at Young Crafters Unite!
