Brown Sugar #280 - 6th July, 2018

This month's challenge is to use 2 or more patterned papers and our sponsor is 
A Day for Daisies. 

Love working with A Day for Daisies images and this time I paper pieced "Acorn Cutie" turning her into a Gumnut Baby.  The verse is from The Stringy Bark Tree by Henry Lawson.

I managed to get 7 different papers into my little framed picture. 5 from Stampin Up, one from Kaisercraft and I hand cut the gum leaves from an old book.  The gumnuts are real, our lawns are covered in them and I quilled the little gum flowers.

 There’s the whitebox and pine on the ridges afar,
where the iron-bark, blue gum,and peppermint are;
There is many another, but dearest to me,
And the king of them all was the stringy-bark tree
