Inspired by Loll - CASE 7

Hello everyone,

I am writing this post while sitting in God's own country - Kerala. The Southern most state in India. But I had made my Inspired by Loll card before starting for this little vacation.

A little about this CASE. I have admired this technique since the first time I saw it and also The flower challenge had it as their challenge, but I had not tried it. This snail card by Loll was too cute to resist trying Paper piecing .

Loll's cutie snail is the reason I took out my pattern paper from hndmd called Super kids for paper piecing this Comforting hugs Cactus by Paper Smooches . If you ever try paper piecing, use a black marker (or the colour you stamp with) to colour the edge of the paper for a cleaner look. Then I took a bright pattern paper by Papericious for the card base.

Here's a closer look at the paper piecing. I was unnecessarily getting intimidated by it, I think it's as easy as fussy cutting and the effect is awesome.

What do you think? Have you tried paper piecing.. if not then you must'll love it.
Thank you so much Loll for inspiring me to try this, it was so much fun.

Succulent gardening is so IN now- a - days, though I do the gardening at home and have few succulents, I'd like to join in at the DT call at The Male room challenge - where the theme is Gardening!
