CPS sketch #159 take 2

Hi and happy Friday!

Who’s excited for the weekend?? I am, I am :)   Do you have any fun plans for the weekend?  Thankfully, our weekend is looking pretty low-key although Carlin has to go into work tomorrow morning which is disappointing. 

For today’s card, I made another card using the CPS sketch number 159 because I wasn’t loving my other card for some reason.  And because I have been needing, yes needing to play with Courtney’s latest set!

So here’s the sketch:


And here’s what I came up with:


As you can see a lot of paper piecing was involved.  Hmmm, cutting pretty paper, yep, I like it!  I think I’m also going to post it on Moxie Fab’s latest challenge for paper piecing because this card is all about it.

I used Cosmo Cricket’s Joy Ride set which seemed appropriate with the hot air balloons (okay, I think I’ve admitted before that I am a tad anal and also a complete nerd).

I also used Courtney’s You’re Dandy’s rays on this card which I think is a great compliment to the Joy Ride.

At any rate, I hope you like it and have a very blessed weekend!
