Christmas Stampin All Year Long

Can you believe that it's already time for a new challenge at CSAYL?!
This week our designers got to play with any Christmas image they wanted to. The only requirement was to use the paper piecing technique. And that's my challenge for you today.

Chose your favorite holiday image or maybe one that hasn't seen ink in way too long. We all have those, right? Use the paper piecing technique on your holiday card and leave us a link!

One winner will be chosen next Thursday to be a guest designer next month!

For my card, I decided to use one of the new images from the Creepin Kit by The Greeting Farm.  This is Sasha.
I don't think she was designed as a Christmas image, but I have a friend who loves her cowboy boots.  Not a look that works for everyone, but she totally rocks it.  This will be her Christmas card.
I paper pieced the red layer of her dress.  Such an easy-peasy technique, but it really pulls a card together!
I did some hand stitching on a couple of the paper strips,
and then finished it off with this sassy little sentiment by My Favorite Things.
Be sure to hop on over to the CSAYL challenge blog to see what the design team made this week.  We'd love for you to play along!  I know it's only April, but when December rolls around, you'll be SO glad you did!

Hi MacKenzie, I love what you have done with the image - I would never have guessed that she wasn't meant to be a Xmas stamp. Your colouring is fantastic too!

Simply adorable! Paper piecing is the perfect way to make almost any image a Xmas one! Loving your Creeper Crew creations too!
