Mash-em-up-challenge Card for Bugaboo

What?! What do I mean by "Mash-em-up-Challenge Card"?! Well....that's my way of killing two birds with one stone......get it? "Two Birds" on my card?! lol! I am killing it over here! lol! ;0)
Anyhow, Bugaboo Stamps has a challenge blog, Catch the Bug Challenge Blog, and they also have a group on Paper Craft Planet (PCP), and Crafters Digital Art Center (CDAC) where they host challenges and give away awesome freebies! So, I combined the challenges on one card (hence, "mash-em-up-challenge" title of this post), to enter into all three challenges (I'm feeling very efficient today! lol!)
Here's my card
This card uses my Tag, Scalloped Pocket SVG
These SVG files are no longer available for free.
Please visit my SVG's for Sale Page located at the top of this blog.

This is the card, closed. It is a slider/pocket card. The image is paper-pieced with some patterned papers that I printed (found some goodies online......fabric shop "samples" work great for printing digital subtle patterns!).  The challenge at Catch the Bug this week is to  "use warm colors and paper piecing".
The challenge at PCP and CDAC, which is the Wacky Wednesday Challenge #17, is to use a technique, Paper Piercing and Faux Stitching. Here's a photo of the tag pulled out of the pocket.
I used a Kitchen Chicken image for my front paper-pieced image, and the chef image is from the Chef Pierre collection of images that Jodie created a while back. I just love the Chef Pierre images, and I have them all, but this is probably the one I use most. :0) I recently obtained the Kitchen Chickens, and I must say, I am loving this! I now have the rest of the images from this collection on my wish list (which is never-ending, I might add!! LOL!)  :0)
My papers are from a K&Company stack called Halloween and Fall. I love this stack of papers!
I paper pierced around some edges, adding some white gel pen for my faux stitches.
The scalloped ribbon tag is an svg that I created, and it will be posted tomorrow as a freebie, so come back to pick it up then! :0)
Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to head over to the challenges to enter your creation, too!
Happy Crafting!
