MFTeasers, Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of May previews with My Favorite Things!  Today the team is sharing samples of the five new Pure Innocence sets:  Lily of the Valley, Roll With It, Skater Boy, Pucker Up and Fresh From the Oven.  I didn’t know which one to start with so I literally put them into a pile, closed my eyes and pointed.

Roll With It

I kept my card fairly simple (mostly because I still feel like I’m in that slump). 

I paper-pieced the helmet, shirt and shorts, leaving the bottom edge of the shirt tipped up just a bit.

I did have quite the battle with the crystal flourish.  I love the look of them, but I don’t always have the patience for them.  I swear they have a mind of their own.  This one was flopping all over the place, folding and sticking to itself… I came very close to wadding it up into the ball it seemed to want to become and throwing it in the trash.  But I managed (somehow) to salvage it (and my sanity).  There has to be a secret to applying them. I just haven’t figured it out yet.

A simple finish to the inside.
