New Method Playground Challenge # 15!

Paper piecing isn't just for tear bears anymore!
The latest challenge at the Method Playground is to paper piece an embellishment.
This is a great challenge, it reminded me to take a little time to make that perfect embellishment that you just can't buy at the shop! I will admit that I was frustrated for a while, It took me a few tries to get a look that I liked that didn't take a ton of time. I wanted to do something that was complimentary to the layout, but didn't take it over or look way too fussy.
Anyway, I will be doing more of this, it was really fun after I figured it out and I like the idea that I can create embellishments that match perfectly!
