'You've Got this' paper piecing | #tgifc05

I am back with another TGIF challenge!

And believe me, thank goodness it's Friday for "realsies".  I am off to a Stampin' Up! scrapbook/card making retreat.  Make sure to follow along on Facebook as I show you sneaks of what I am up to!

We've been bringing you challenges all month so this week, the challenge is to use two of the four challenges.  I used the week two sketch #tgifc02 and the flower inspiration #tgif04 from last month!

This card came together rather quickly.  I decided to play with some watercoloring.  For those wondering how to do that in the Stampin' Up! world, simply take your refill ink and drop a couple drops onto a kraft mat.  Add water.  Use a brush or aqua paper to apply to your paper.  Dry with a heat gun.  So easy and effective.

I also did paper piecing - remember that? I stamped using versamark on the new watermelon wonder paper "I'm here for you".  I did this multiple times and then I stamped the gorgeous flower from the "You've got this"stamp set (coming to you in the new catalog).

The stem and yellow paper pieces come from the Cherry on Top 6x6 paper pad... also coming to you on June 2nd!

Make sure to play along with us this month as James is celebrating with a giveaway!
