Paper Pieced Dance!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend, I know I did! I got the chance to work on a bunch of cards and today I thought I would share with you the card I created for one of the ladies I work with. One of the secretaries in the office celebrates their birthday this week, and I have two different people I work with asking for some fun birthday cards. For this one she wanted something classy, sort of party girl, and fun so I pulled out my Dance the Night Away set from My Favorite Things!

I also wanted to use purple as my main color since I know that she really likes purple, so I used this lavender lace cardstock and this fabulous DP from Wisteria Paper Pad from Basic Grey. Since I was taking the time to create another card I decided that I would use the chance to play along with a challenge that I saw Joanne post earlier this week in celebration of her Blogaversary! The challenged she issued to use paper piecing, which I thought would be perfect for this birthday card anyway, so why not give it a shot and play along! I hope you like this one, it has a lot of layers to the base, not as many as I usually use in one card but I thought it seemed fitting some how. Enjoy your week!
