Fun Christmas Card

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge is to make a card using paper piecing.  There's a chance at a random drawing AND 4 people will be picked to be Guest Designers in December!  Decided I may as well give it a try, so pulled out this cute border stamp--one of my oldest Flourishes stamps.  It was hard to find patterned paper with a small enough design for these little gifts, but turned out these old 8 1/2 by 11 sheets I didn't think I'd ever use were just what I needed.  I used Memento markers to color the ribbons & tissue paper & Stickles is added to the flourish giving a nice sparkle in real life. I like using Spellbinders Labels 10 for shaped cards.  
I was able to cut all 3 papers at once so they were lined up like I wanted. Narrow ribbon & pearls finish it off.
Watching football with hubby after work (Go Ducks!--won again!) so didn't get to your blogs today, but I will soon.  Your comments always make my day & I thank you.
