Lawnscaping Challenge #62- Paper Piecing


Hey Everyone! Today I have a very fun card to share with you for the Lawnscaping Challenge Facebook Inspiration Design Team! This card was made for the Lawnscaping Challenge #62- Paper Piecing. I have to make a confession that I have never paper pieced before, so this is my first attempt at it. I have always seen such cute projects with paper piecing. Let me tell you, it is so easy and fun to do! I think I might be hooked on this technique. I wanted to add some shadows to my pieces so I just used some brown chalk ink. 

My most favorite cards to make are scenes that tell a story, and using cute animals is an added bonus. Ice cream and milkshakes are always refreshing on hot days. So of course, there is a local ice cream parlor in the middle of the savanna for all the critters. These critters are indulging themselves with a nice strawberry flavored ice cream and shake with their favorite toppings.
