Paper Pieced Framed Christmas Favorites

This is for today's FREE 4 ALL CHALLENGE # 36 - Rummage & Scavenging practice; Thursday's WAYS TO USE IT CHALLENGE # 294 - Frames; Wednesday's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 304; and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 294 - Breezy Blushing Cakes.
Today I actually put ink to rubbah!! YEAH! There are parts of digi images that I love and parts about rubbah that I love, being able to paper piece is one of the many things I love about rubbah. I used a Christmas set from last year's release from TREEHOUSE STAMPS - Christmas Favorites. I used my black SU marker to ink the stocking so I could omit the circles from the image since my dp already had circles. I stamped 3 of the snowflakes randomly on blushing bride panel 1 and baja breeze panel 3 in baja breeze then doodles some dots around. I used the scrap left over from panel 2 to paper piece my stocking as well as some baja breeze scraps. My image was cut out and popped up on the oval Nestie and then Label 10 Nestie for framing. I adhered 6 pink gems on the Nestie Label 10 panel. I have a granddaughter who already thinks she is a "queen" so this will be her card this year. I hope she likes it.
