There's a new challenge over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday and this week the optional twist is PAPER PIECING. I used an image from our sponsor this month, Ppinkydolls, colored up with Promarkers.
I stamped some houses onto DP, fussy cut them and paper pieced the windows and doors.
The ice is silver metallic tape. I framed the scene using stitched circle dies from Memory Box. The white panel is embossed with an EF from Tim Holtz. I stamped a Christmas greeting and added a die cut holly swirl, covered with white and gold frantage, and added 3 red pearls.

This card is also for these challenges:
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra - Christmas  
Natalie and Amy's Challenge - #38 Winter Scenes
Card and Scrap - #106 Christmas

Silver metallic tape for who is brilliant? YOU!! That looks marvelous. I love your paper pieced card Pia. What is it about a circle scene on a rectangle or square card that just looks so fun? I don't know, but the combination is FABULOUS!!
