Newton's Nook Designs February Release Day 1


Welcome to Newton's Nook Designs February Release Blog Hop. 
Today's hop features Winston


 
This accordion card features Winston multiple times.  I scored my paper multiple times then cut the corners to create a tag shape.  Remember Care Bears?  Well they inspired me to color Winston in fun, bright colors using my Spectrum Noir markers.  I punched the holes in the tags and added color coordinating ribbon.


For this card, I paper pieced Winston.  Die cut the banner.
To add some extra fun, I paper pierced the border.
