Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #98 - Paper Piecing!

 ....And it's Saturday??!!
Where did this week go?? 
I feel like this year has just flown by and I still haven't 
got half of what I wanted to get done done...And it's
October people...OCTOBER!! A little under 3 months
and it's Christmas... OMGoodness...LOL!

 Ok, enough of me whingeing...
This week's
Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge
is being hosted by one of our new but extremely talented
and gorgeous (and she's Australian like me) Nicole...

This week Nic would like you to do some "Paper Piecing" 
on your card...

This is mine...

For this project I thought I would colour in one of Kimmie's new
Christmas images "The Shepard". This gorgeous little guy is 
included in the "O Holy Night Christmas Nativity Set" designed
by Cheryl Alger, which you can find in the Kraftin' Kimmie Store 
for $24.00.

The papers are from My Minds Eye's Lost and Found "Portobello
Road" 6x6 paper pad. I used Jen Shults Deconstructing Sketch
#19 for inspiration...

 I coloured in the Shepard in with my Prisma pencils
 and for the challenge part I paper pieced his robes..
 which isn't as easy as it looks...

 Last of all I decorated the inside of the card with one of  the
perfect "Nativity Sentiments" that you can also find in the store...

Now, please don't forget about Kimmie's
