Paper Piecing Time with The Cat's Pajamas

Happy Tuesday, Friends!  It's a new month and it is time for a new TCP Tuesday Challenge!  Alma's challenge for the month is to incorporate paper piecing into your design.  I love to paper piece!  It is one of my favorite techniques.  To play along, please visit ALMA'S BLOG
September brings about a lot of birthdays between family and friends, so I had our three little penguin friends from The Cat's Pajamas bring some birthday wishes with them this time around.  The main image is from the TCP Ship Happens set and the sentiment is from the TCP Birthday Bunny set.  Along with the paper piecing, I used a few Copic Markers (BG01, BG53, C1, C3, YG63, YG67, YR20, and YR21) on the image and the sentiment is stamped with Memento Paris Dusk ink.  I also used a few of the TCP CutUps on my card.  The background was made with the new Chevron CutUps die.  The clouds were made with the Cloud Border CutUps die and some TCP Felt.  Then I used the Buttons CutUps die for the button and I threaded it with some TCP Blueberry Divine Twine.  My other accent is that beautiful TCP Aqua Seam Binding.  All of the patterned papers are from different collections from Jillibean Soup.
I am so glad that you took the time to visit with me today.  Hopefully, you will be able to find some time to join us for this month's challenge and then you'll have a chance to be the next Swanky Stamper for The Cat's Pajamas. 
We are already in our second week of school and it is going smoothly.  I am beyond happy about that!!  Have a beautiful day and until next time...Toodles!  :D
