Tracy's Sketch Challenge

Hey there :) I hope your week is a super one so far! Thank you for all the kind words about the tutorial. Janet asked a great question about what kind of scissors I use for paper piecing: the ones I use most often are the Fiskars Softouch Micro-Tip Scissors, and sometimes I'll use a craft knife.
The card I'm posting today is another one featuring paper piecing that I made for Tracy's Sketch Challenge; Tracy posts a new sketch on her blog every Thursday and I try to play along whenever I can. For this card I used a stamp I've had for several years! It's by Rubbermoon. The patterned paper is Basic Grey's "Porcelain" collection - love it!
The temperature here reached over 70 degrees yesterday; it's beautiful! I told Iain we should get the cushions back out for the chairs on our deck this weekend. Spring is finally here in the mountains! Have a terrific day :)

Very pretty, Toni! The paper piecing really makes your images beautiful!

Thanks for the info on the scissors. :-) I need to give this a try!
