Paper Piercing for Baby

There's no PIERCING here. It's another paper PIECING card for that Moxie Fab challenge. And it works for the current Caardvarks baby card and The Shabby Tearoom "Hip to be Square" challenges too.

I used a 3/4 inch punch to make the paper squares. I grabbed a bunch of paper from my stash that coordinated, but paper piecing is a great way to use up scraps. I based the card on Kazan's Sketch 50 at 2 Sketches 4 You. Here's the sketch:

And here's a closer look at the detail of the card. The sentiment is actually cut from designer paper.

Caardvarks is hosting a huge blog hop now with over 20 designers and their challenge is to create a baby card. You've got until April 17th if you want to play along.
Cardstock: Halcraft ivory
Paper: Paper Pizazz, ProvoCraft, Making Memories
Accessories: Cuttlebug embossing folder from It's a Boy set, EK Success 3/4 inch square punch
