Here's another combined challenges creation. I'm using Paper Wishes message board June 27 guest host challenge to incorporate slide mount and Ribbon Carousel's #10 Challenge to incorporate paper piecing.
The slide mount had purple string woven around the top half as well as Jillibean Soup's Atomic cardstock stickers spelling "best year". Behind the slide mount is a pre-printed card cut in small rectangle shape so that some of the happy birthday print shows through the slide mount opening as well as around it. The pre-printed card is from HOTP's Paper Pizzaz/PW. I also used the part of the same card to create the flourish shown on the inside of the card. Also from PW/HOTP are all the brads and flowers (Earth Palette's creative brad kit)and the basic white card form. And the inside view's flourish was created by enlarging part of a stencil in Pebble's stencils accent set purchased from PW.
Paper pieced are the paper pieces that if you look at the cover in a certain way you should be able to see the elements as a stacked cake. (That was actually a happy accident of the process.) Ribbon Carousel's spool required supplies include the purple string used around the slide mount and also between the two brads that was tied into a bow.
It's certainly a different styling for me but I like the combination of colors, patterns, the overall look of both the cover and the inside.
(From Jillibean Soup's Atomic Cardstock Sticker set is also the border sticker used on the inside. I also used papers from Colorbok's pattern set.)
I don't have an image to input for the guest host challenge but it can be found on the Paper Wishes message board's guest host challenge thread under the category of Swaps and Challenges.
