PTI Princesses Blogging Group Challenge #1

I am a part of a blogging group and we do challenges every couple of weeks. Well today was our first one, hosted by Diane. Go see her blog and her adorable cards here. It was to use paper piecing. I love doing this with lined images and pulled out a PTI set that hasn't seen much ink, Mailbox Greetings. I paper pieced the mail boxes and the posts separately. The sentiment and flowers are from the same set. The background paper is from DCWV The Green Stack. That is one of my most favorite stacks they've come out with. A bit of PTI Ripe Avocado twill, a scallop border, some embossed circles cut with my Nesties and a bit of twine. Simple, but I like the layout of it. I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday...tomorrow is Friday! :)
