It is time for another challenge from AnnaBelle Stamps. Today's challenge is SAY IT IN...PINK, BLUE, CHOCOLATE

I used LIL MICHELLE WITH TEDDY from AnnaBelle Stamps.

I started with my top folded 4 1/2 x 4 1/4 card base. I cut out the largest scallop circle from it leaving room for the fold at the top. Then I cut out the same shape from my pink dp and adhered to the top. This way you get the full shape from the front. I then cut the largest circle from my blue dp and stamped my Michelle two times at an angle toward each other.

I stamped Michelle two times on a post it note and cut each out to use as a mask. I then put them on my blue circle and stamped my sentiment for my background. I drew a pencil line across horizontally at the top and used as a guide across. I did this for each line...lining up the top of my stamp with the line above.

Next I stamped out my girls on each dp for my paper piecing. I then adhered all the pieces and ran it through my cuttlebug using the CB Houndstooth embossing folder. I stamped Michelle's head two more times on white cs and on the browns for her hair. I paper pieced again , embossed and popped up their heads. I used the cute sprinkles from AnnaBelle Stamps for their ponytail holders. I stitched my edge and adhered to the card front.

How FUN! - Always fun to see a "circular" card but what I really like is the awesome paper piecing (especially with the hair).
