Timeless Tuesday - FTTC186
Find an inspiration photo on Pinterest 
to inspire your card or creation!

So awhile ago I saw this beautiful holiday quilt pinned on Pinterest so I decided to use it as my inspiration for this week's challenge. Click the image to take you to the original pin...

For today's card creation I have used the September's newly released 123 Create Kit!  This is kit is so pretty!  It's packed full of gorgeous BoBunny 6x6 patterned papers, 3 kinds of gorgeous ribbons & a cool silver cording, some awesome little kraft pennant shapes with pins, some gorgeous green gems and some stunning snowflake charms!  Yup... all that is this one little kit!!!

And finally... my card using my Pinterest pin find!

Patchwork Poinsettia

For my card, I used the "Poinsettia & Boxwood" stamp set.  This set is PERFECT for paper piecing (and so is the new Poinsettia & Pine set) so that's exactly what I did!  All of those pretty patterned papers you see on my poinsettia are in the September 123 Create Kit!!!  See that cool silver cording and that cute little kraft pennant & pin... all included in the September 123 Create Kit!!

I used my favourite ink, Memento Black Tuxedo ink and stamped out parts/leaves of my poinsettia image all over little scraps of patterned papers and on my die cut circle from Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  My "XOXO" on my little greeting pennant is from the "Tiny Flowers & Tags" stamp set.  It fit perfectly on the little pennant!

I hope my card inspires you to paper piece something.  Come and play along with us this week!  The possibilities are ENDLESS for this week's challenge!
