Paper Piecing is the challenge this week at Craft Your Passion.We have the fab AiFactory and Bunny Zoe as our sponsors!Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used Love Birds on Branch from AiFactory.I printed onto the cloud paper then coloured the branch ans birds beaks using ProMarkers. The rest has been paper pieced.The base card is made from acetate and I’ve layered various papers from the same pad.Liquid Pearls have been added to the centres of the flowers and the illusion of shine given with a white gel pen. The bird image is mounted on card to give it more stability as I wanted it hang over the side of the card.I’ve played with my Brother hand held label printer again to create the sentiment.Some grossgrain ribbon,a wooden flower button coloured with an ink pad and some twine complete the card.
