Craft Your Passion Challenge Day

Today there is another challenge over at the Craft Your Passion Challenge blog. Today is to incorporate paper piecing in your card.  Head over to the blog to read about the details of this challenge. While visiting the Craft Your Passion blog, check out the beautiful cards created by my fellow DT members. I would encourage you to participate in the challenge and show us your beautiful creation.
For my card, I used a chef image from Lauretta's Digital Stamps.  I've been wanting to use this image for awhile and this was the perfect "excuse" to use it.  I printed out the image onto white paper then paper-pieced his pants, hat, jacket, scarf, and cake.  I just had to give him the standard black and white checked chef pants.  I love paper-piecing and the striking results you can achieve from this technique.  I finished coloring the chef with Copic markers then gave him black buttons.  I didn't think this card need much more, so I kept it more on the simple side to highlight the black and white gingham.
