Wow, it's Oct. 1, 2010 - where has the time gone?!?  Life has been busy but fun!  Speaking of fun, there's a NEW CHALLENGE over at WHOOPSI DAISY CHALLENGES starting today and running through Oct. 31.  After that, we will start going weekly on Nov. 1, 2010 - I can't wait! 

Our challenge for this month will be one of my VERY FAVORITE techniques - PAPER PIECING!  I love to paper piece digi images:)  Although it is not required for you to use a WHOOPSI DAISY image to play along in our challenges, we'd sure LOVE to see them!  You can find them at WHOOPSI DAISY SHOP.  Trust me, you will LOVE these images and want all of them!:)

For my card I tried a new technique that I have not tried before - double sided stair step card.  I followed the tutorial from this blog -
Remember, to see this or any of my cards larger, just click on the image.  For my card, I picked 3 WHOOPSI DAISY IMAGES - the one on the left is from sheet 124 and the other 2 are from sheet 110.  I believe base CS is SU Dusty Durango - I made the base at my friend's house and I needed a 12 x 12 sheet of CS and so I borrowed some from her.  DP is all Basic Grey from Eerie pack.  All images are colored with Copics, Atyou Spicas and paper pieced with Basic Grey, cut with nesties and daubed with SU inks - pear pizzazz, peach parfait and chocolate chip.  I varied the daubed - lots on left image, medium on middle and not much on right.  Bow is MFT ribbon.  All flowers were made using scallop circle punches of various sizes, two are stuck together with Basic Grey brads and the other is used to hopd the sentiment which is from Northwoods, stamped in Memento brown.  Bats are from Michaels.  I hope you like it, please let me know what you think:)

This card is also for the following challenges:
STAMPS R US - Halloween
WILD ORCHID - ribbons and bows
CRAFTALICIOUS - harvest festival/Autumn
INKTEGRITY - fall colors
