Hope all is well with you. Are you excited about the Olympics that started Friday? There are many things I like to watch plus see who gets the most gold medals. The opening ceremonies are my favorite but I totally missed them this time. I had a major migraine and missed all of it. I have looked at some highlights but that was not the same. Let's begin with the challenge

Well we have the pleasure of having Robyn sponsor our challenge from her store The Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More. As we usually do, she let us pick our own digital image from anywhere in her store. I wanted to pick out something big so you could see that I paper pieced my image. So, I picked "Rose." I wanted to make the petals separate so you could see the piecing. Here is my "Rose."

Robyn is giving one lucky winner

3 Digital Images

I made this rose into a sympathy card. I have the hardest time making these just because what it is meant for. So, I know in the future someone will be needing this card. The different kind of frames is from Sizzix Framelits. The package didn't have a name for what these shapes were called and if it did, I could find them no where. I paper pieced the rose and the leaves. I put a little lines in the leafs but don't know if you can see them. I cut every piece of the rose and then glue it on there. I then added the quote at the top and put flowers at the corner to kind of brighten it up some. The last thing I did was put an Angel on top of the flowers because I believe that your guardian Angel takes you to heaven. I will let you know where the items came from.

Thank You for reading my post again this week. I do enjoy sharing my cards and hoping you find inspiration from them. Let me see what you can do with paper piecing this week. Link them at The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog so I can see them. Our design team is also sharing their cards with paper piecing on there. These are wonderful cards. Hope you have a Wonderful Week
