I’m back again for another week of the Hambo Hoedown. This week, the challenge was to use bright colors and paper piecing in your card.
I haven’t done too much paper piecing, trying it for the first time a few weeks ago, so I was a little nervous trying to do it with digital stamps. However, I’m really happy with the way this card came out. My husband commented that it looks like she’s riding in a thimble, instead of a basket, but I don’t care! It’s colorful.
Speaking of colorful, I picked up these three patterned papers on sale at Micheals about a month ago and hadn’t found the perfect time to use them. When I went through my paper trying to find a “colorful” pattern for this card, I found the paper and decided this was the perfect card to use it on.
The sentiment is not Hambo, or the one that comes with this Balloon Girl stamp. I didn’t mind the Hambo sentiment (which says “What’s Up?”), but I haven’t found the opportunity to use this “Up, Up and Away” sentiment yet from My Favorite Things, so decided to mix it up a bit.
