Flashback Friday's Challenge 21



You might remember last month I discovered a wonderful challenge blog that showcased your first card using particular elements/techniques.  Well I thought this concept was kind of cool, so I decided to play along again with their latest challenge.  The site is called Flashback Fridays.

Each Challenge they have a Guest Designer who sets picks the Challenge.  This time the Guest Designer is is Jen W and you can visit her blog Jenerally Speaking here.  Jen has chosen for us all to revisit our first Paper Pieced Card.

I have to say I didn't have to think to hard on this one as I can remember it well.  It was for a Challenge over at Party Time Tuesdays last year which was to make a St Patricks Day Easel Card following their monthly card sketch as well.  So it's quite fitting that this fits the challenge criteria over at Flashback Fridays given St Patricks Day is just around the corner.  You will find the original post here.


The adorable image was from Baby Bud Designs and the Shamrock Paper was a freebie digi download.

I included an Irish Blessing on the Card which reads.  

For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way
Good Health, Good Luck and Happiness 
For Today and Every Day

I think this card was one of my very first easel cards too!

Be sure to pop over to Flashback Fridays and see all the wonderful and inspiring entries.

Cute card Danie. You must be organized because I sure couldn't find my first pieced card. I love the "green" theme. Perfect for St. Patrick's Day.
