It's time for our Monthly Challenge Midway Reminder at Forever Friends and this month our theme is - PAPER PIECING.  I have made two cards this month and this is the second one using a fabulous image from Pink Gem Designs one of our sponsors this month:

I have paper pieced his top and kept everything to just two colours. The papers are Echo Park and they have been layered onto Core'dinations card stock.  I used an X-cut die for the stars and the sentiment banner is a Spellbinders die cut along with a Studio Light stamp with a little distress ink to highlight.

As usual I have decorated the inside of my card using the same papers and design as the front:
