A Favorite Color Combo


Sassy Cheryl's current challenge has a theme of  "Favorite Color Combo" and one of mine is red, white and black. I had recently purchased this wonderful patterned paper with a Dr. Suess design and immediately thought of Cheryl's awesome digital image "Plays Dr. Suess" which I had also recently purchased and so here is the result. I punched out the Dr. Suess images and cut out the hearts and added them to the background card stock and I gave her a bow tie like Dr. Suess and added a heart to it and more hearts to the ball and the cups. This was so much fun to make - you know that I love to paper piece! Go to to be inspired by her designer team and the entries to try a color combination you may not have used!

Thank you for stopping by today to visit my blog! Wishing you a happy day of fun coloring! If you have not tried paper piecing - it's a great de-stressor!You just get in the zone and time passes! :<)
