Papertrey Ink's April Blog Hop



I was selected as one of the participants for the April blog hop at Papertrey Ink. I decided to make two cards.

Card one, I used the paper snipets to make a bowtie as well as cutting down some squares to create the look of a cumberbund.

Card two, I found an image and basically paper pieced the suit jacket and tie, using the paper snipets for the tie and hankie in the pocket as well as cutting the squares in half for the corners of the card.
