CCEE 1234 - Paper Piecing

This week CCEE hostess Anne asked us to do a little paper piecing, which is always fun.  I used a brand-new Mark's Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company, set called Lesson Learned.  One of the images is a big ripe apple for the teacher.



I made a CAS card with just the apple and a simple Happy Birthday sentiment.  The DP I used for "piecing"  is a Recollections patterned paper from Michaels.  My most favorite CAS element is a single-line frame.  I confess that I use it a lot!

Visit the CCEE blog to see what the rest of team did.   We'd love to have you play along with us.   If you decide to do so, be sure to use the keyword CCEE1234 if you post on another site, such as Splitcoaststampers so we can find your card.

Stamps:  Mark's Finest Papers - Lesson Learned
Paper:  MFP Cherry Slush, Snow Storm Smooth; Recollections DP
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories:  Copic markers G40, G82 (for leaf), Memento Lady Bug marker (for line frame)

I love dots, Lois. Your apple is so cute. You really do a good job with the single-line frame. I would have to practice a lot to get that lined up just right. Love this CAS card.

That spotted apple is so much fun! Love the simple line frame - and plenty of red to make Anne extra happy, too ;-).
