I needed to make a card for someone who's retiring from work and used today's sketch challenge, flipping it and then paper piecing various bits of PTI's On My Couch set - it's always fun, kind of like doing a mini interior design job! Hope the tilted main panel doesn't make it look like this little living room is in an earthquake zone! I crinkled up some seam binding and added ric rac and buttons to finish. I'll be adding a tiny tag with the person's name on it to the bow.
More on my blog.

LOVE IT!! I have this set (and actually I have this paper,too..hmm) and it's so much fun. I agree you feel like you're a decorator! Great paper piecing and all your little additions..the rick rack, seam binding, and buttons..so pretty!
Your card is fantastic. I especially love the color choices. Well done.
