for Baby

I made this baby card for the Queen for the Day Challenge from last week!  Just getting the card made tonight!  You can come play along with the Queen for the Day Challenge here.
I paper pieced the duck (stamped on yellow and cut out and glued onto the white stamped image).
I used two types of patterned paper, both razzleberry and some wisteria twine to match the base color.
I can't believe I didn't even texture anything, although I did use my Big Shot for the Top Note piece.

Pieced and Pierced

I made this card for Creative Crew SU! challenges on Splitcoast.
One challenge was to use the soon-to-be-retired 2011 colors.  Focus on your least favorite.  My least favorite was Calypso Coral.
Also the challenge was to use piercing in a different way.  I pierced a heart behind my sentiment.

The snail and flowers are stamped and cut out (paper pieced) on white, limeade and coral.
I inked the zigzag embossing folder with brown ink before running the calypso coral paper through.
