Paper cutting 3

Well I thought I would give it one more go.  Paper cutting, it has to be said, is not my skill set!  I find it so hard to control the knife around curves, especially small ones.  Still I did persist and I am quite pleased.  My lack of skill however did mean that I had to cut off the word 'So Tweet'  The 'So' went because I forgot to draw it the right way and the 'Tweet' quickly followed suit as I accidentally cut the arm of the 'T' off!  Anyhow what do you think?  I am thinking that I should just stick to the drawing and program my silhouette to cut it out next time!! 

I am going to share this on Handmade Harbour so do pop over and say hi to all the talented people taking part in Handmade Monday.
