HELLO {Fresh Brewed Designs Animals Challenge}

Animals Challenge
FRESH BREWED DESIGNS

A lovely challenge is currently running over at Fresh Brewed Designs with the theme ANIMALS.  I have used this cute little monkey called BETSY'S BIRTHDAY, which you can purchase here. Also visit Fresh Brewed Designs' Facebook Page to join in all the fun and surprises, here.


Betsy has been paper pieced and coloured with Copics.  The design papers, buttons and raffia are from my stash. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The folded embellishment have been created with square punches.

  20. That monkey is so cute - blowing out her birthday candles. How perfect is that! LOVE it! Desire, I noticed that on almost all your projects you have folded flowers or other folded items, do you have a book that teaches you how to make these origami flowers? Are they complicated? Or are you designing them yourself? I wouldn't be surprise if you created them yourself because you're just super talented like that. And of course, they look lovely on each and every creations you've made! Thank you for always sharing your creations with us! Have a happy Wednesday!
