Paper Piecing Challenge at Fitztown

Great challenge at Fitztown this week, paper piecing.  I used vellum paper in pink and silver for my paper piecing for this birthday card.  The lovely image is by Morgan Fitzwilliam at Fitztown called Fae 19

When I added my purple glitter to the vellum wings the tips of the wings curled for a nice effect.

The supplies I used to make this card are:
  • pink and silver vellum paper
  • Copic Markers
  • purple Stickles
  • purple glitter pen
  • ribbon
