Paper Piecing Challenge

Sharon Johnson posted a paper piecing challenge today, so I thought I'd give it a whirl. I really like paper piecing. I'm not the first person to piece this bird, but it's about the only line-art set I own! I'm a solid image girl myself.My white square just "happened" to be the perfect size to fit on the pumpkin dsp and have the design be a border, love it when that happens!!! I used Bali Breeze dsp for my piecing, and I even pieced the bird's beak, crazy I know. The umbrella and sentiment are popped up on dimensionals, I pierced the white layer, and added some black grosgrain that I just got. The inside of the card reads "it's your birthday", and this will be off to someone who's having a birthday soon!
Thanks for stopping by!
Supplies:
stamps - A Little Birdie
paper - rose red, ww, basic black, Bali Breeze dsp
ink - basic black
acc - mat pack & piercer, black grosgrain, dimensionals, 1" punch, circle cutter
