Stamp Something-Paper Pieced Somethings...DT Card

Good afternoon everyone! Hope everyone is having a fab Friday! Today is my first week as a Stamp Something member and the challenge this week is a really fun one...Paper Piecing. The sponsor this week is Whiff Of Joy and who wouldn't want to win a lovely stamp from them, so you best get paper piecing! I actually inked up this little lovely after months of neglect from me-naughty Rowena! She is a sweetie isn't she?! For my paper piecing I actually only did 2 small sections which are her head band and scrunchie which have been pieced with the same paper I've used on the back layer of my card.

Stuff: Whiff of Joy image coloured with promarkers, K and Co papers from Classic Collection boxset, core'dinations cardstock, distressing tool (but you can achieve the same effect with scissors), files to distress the papers, sizzix die for tag pocket, raffia from stash, prima flowers, distress inks in tea dye and vintage photo, hatpin from ebay.

You must pop over to the Stamp Something challenge blog and take a look at all the gorgeous dt cards! Thank you for popping by today and for any comments you might leave-they make my day! Huggles xxx
