Paper Piecing and Piles O' Presents

Another week, another fun bunch of CDAC challenges to choose from! I have so many projects on my plate, but I do loving participating in at least one challenge a week over there; it's such a great opportunity to try digi stamps by different artists.

This week's Special Occasion Challenge is sponsored by Zlatoena Designs, with the theme of Birthdays. I loved her happy bunny digi and decided to do some old-fashioned paper piecing (paper piercing?). I also ended up using a lot of decorative paper, which I often don't do because I'm a bit of a hoarder! I'm very happy with how it turned out; it just sort of fell together and I'm glad to have another go-to birthday card.

I'm also entering this card in the Jute, Twine or String challenge at My Partner in Crafting Crime (PCC). I've been intrigued by this challenge since it was posted, and have found myself using a lot of the pretty Bakers Twine from my stash this past week, but this is the project I'm entering!
