Taking a challenge literally

I took the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays literally. I thought that the name of the challenge was pretty cool and all I could think about when I saw it was jigsaw pieces. I have absolutely no jigsaw digital stamps etc so at first didn't know how I was going to put my card together. After a google search I then came across a free jigsaw template which I printed and cut out three random pieces that I traced on different patterned papers, I cut out the patterned pieces and outlined with a black artliner. I overlapped the pieces and then stuck to the card with self adhesive dimensional foam. I have printed the sentiment directly onto the white cardstock. I am happy with the way this card turned out and think it's a great design to use up patterned paper.

It's pretty late in Sydney so won't carry on to much in this post. Hope everyone has had a great weekend and wishing everyone a great week as well.

The Challenges I have included-
Paper piecing-CAS-ual Fridays
Patterned paper-Lily pad

I love this card.
I'm wondering what stamp set you used.
It would be good for friends of mine who's children have Autism and I'd like to find it.
