My first paper piecing card

This is my first attempt at paper piecing. Thanks to a face tutorial on cooking with cricut I really like how it turned out.


The teddy is a freebie from Treasure Box

Flower is from the floor at work

Paper and bling are from my scrap

Sentiment is a digi

The eyes are made from black cuts and then white penned. Isnt that cute and super easy.

I made the ribbon and bow from the back ground paper
