Happy

Hello! Here is a bright and cheery card for the current Ippity Challenge. The challenge is to use Unity/Ippity stamps and paper piecing. I LOVE paper piecing. I find so much satisfaction in cutting out colored bits of paper:)

My second challenge for this card was simply taking the picture. I seriously took about 10 different photos with different light and different backgrounds. It seems that bright, normal sunlight is the best for taking pictures. Now...how to simulate that indoors, especially when those dark winter months come!! I'll keep playing with it and let you know if I figure it out. If someone else already knows what to do, PLEASE share the secret!:)

Have a great day!!

I have the trouble with lighting too in the Winter, I really don't want to be traipsing outside when it is ten below out with two feet of snow! Your card is fun, I like how the colors pop from the white base.
