'Tis the Season Clean and Simple

Hello and Happy Monday!  It's time for another CAS Challenge over at Splitcoast and this week's theme is paper piecing.  I have an admission to make.  This is the first paper pieced project I have ever done so be kind.  I'm not sure why, but I think it's as simple as I never got around to doing it even though it has been on my "tot ry" list since forever.  Maybe it's because my "to try" list is now a "to try" binder.

Anyway, this is as CAS as they come.  I stamped this adorable little tree image on some scrap patterned paper I had in my bin and then cut it out.  If I were to hazard a guess, I would say it was a piece of retired CTMH holiday paper from a couple years back.  I also stamped the tree onto a piece of Stamper's Select White and then glued my cut out patterned paper in the appropriate spot.  I added a hint of glitter with my Sakura gel pen to the dots on the paper but unfortunately it's not showing in the picture.

I used a punch and some gold scrap paper for the star.  I also added a tiny sparkle to the end of my sentiment.  I really liked how this turned out and I think I'll be making a few more this Holiday season.

Now it's your turn to paper piece something clean and simple and upload it to the gallery at Splitcoast.  I can't wait to see your projects!
