Savvy Birthday

I'm very lucky to be surrounded by a TON of area stamp companies, Savvy Stamps is one of them. The inspiration for this card design was from the Savvy Gallery. The sentiment is ala A Muse {another local stamp company!}. Paper piecing is a great way to use scraps. I'm good at "collecting" scraps..I'm just not so good about using them. Picture this: I have both my paper cutter and paper scorer on my boy's air hockey table. With all this Holiday Gift Show prep, I have a TON of paper scraps basically covering every area that doesn't have a cutter or scorer on it. It makes it easy to use the scraps {there are literally "layers" of scraps..}. This Large Whimsical Outline Cake image is just screaming to be paper pieced...dontcha think?
