One Last Father's Day Card

Happy Father's Day!  I made a yummy breakfast this morning of cheesy scrambled eggs with fried onions, bacon, and homefries - it was delicious.  Then we threw baby back ribs in the oven with a dry rub to slow-cook all day and it already smells sooooo good in my house.  Vegetarian baked beans and rice pilaf and salad will make the perfect meal, can't wait!  I had an order for a few Father's Day cards this year, so here's another one that I made.  I'm entering this one into the following challenges:

I used one of the sweet freebies from Dearie Dolls, paper-pieced (clothes, cap, and shoes) and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  DP is from Authentique, buttons are circle punches are from SU!  Circle sentiment is from Netty's Cards: Freebies. My TIP is this:  Print your image once on a piece of scrap paper and again on your good quality paper that you want to use on your finished project.  Color the parts of your "good" image that you are not paper-piecing.  Take small pieces of scrap designer papers and use adhesive lightly to attach them to the scrap paper however you want them to print out.  I can usually manage to get most of my pieces done by printing them on the scrap paper twice.  Then carefully cut out each piece of clothing (or whatever you are paper-piecing) and apply with adhesive to your "good" image.  Peace.
