Eleven Pipers Piping

     OK, if you read the title of this post, you're already looking for the other 10 pipers.  Don't bother.  They headed out for the pizza parlour!   After a long day of piping, they were more than ready for dinner.


I started with this week's sketch from Sketch Saturday.


     The image came from Scrapper's Delights for their monthly progressive challenge on FB and I used my ProMarkers to color the piper.  His flute is glittered and sparkly.  I cut him with one of my Stitched, Scalloped Circle dies from Memory Box and trimmed one edge to match the sketch design.

     I used dp with red and green buttons, then divided it into the spaces with narrow, striped ribbon.  Doing it that way is so much easier than trying to get nine individual squares all lined up.  :-D

     The poinsettia is made with more die cuts (Die-namics) layered together.  I cut two different red CSs and one green CS, and embossed them with a stylus.  I used the flower as the one embellishment and called it done.  Perhaps not exactly CAS in style but flat and easily mailed.

     More from me later but for now I really must run.  Feel free to stay and browse around if you like.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie

At first I misread the ELEVEN PIPERS PIPING, and ironically read it ELFIN pipers pipping! Still works, though. Adorable card, and beautifully colored in festive, bright colors! Wonderful Christmas card, Connie! Hugs, de

Beautifully made, NC! It's so fun how you used the ribbon to create the grid pattern. Such a gorgeous poinsettia, too. It's so cool what you do with your dies!
