A BIT OF PAPER PIECING

Paper piecing. A technique we don't see so much of any more and yet it's lovely. So, this weeks challenge #53 at I LOVE PROMARKERS is paper piecing. We are sponsored this week by DIE CUT DREAMS.

But....before I show you my card, I'd like to say thank you to every one of you that joined in our birthday celebration last week and for all your lovely comments. As you know there was a fabulous prize on offer (you'll have to go over to the challenge blog to see who's won that) and a little prize from each member of the design team. The winner of my prize is MAMA J. Congratulations hun.

For my card this week, I've used a Tilda which is rare for me. I only own two, lol. My papers are V & A 'Hanovarian' inked round the edges with walnut stain distress ink and Tilda is pieced with the same papers. The frame behind Tilda is a Marianne Doily Die and I cut the centre out with a nestie. Flowers and leaves were punched, lace was in my stash and the sentiment is from The Crafty Pad Stamp Designs.



Joining in the following challenges:
DIGITAL TUESDAY #98 - Use a die cute (digi element is the sentiment)
OOH LA LA #73 - For someone special
OSAAT - Make it pretty
YOUR NEXT STAMP #36 - Paper Piecing

Your cards are extra cute. I wish I had more time to work on crafts but my little guy keeps me so busy I can hardly update my food blog every day. Great work.

This is gorgeous Lorraine :) The paper piecing is so effective, I really enjoyed doing it. It looks fabulous on this card, and I love what you have done with the doily die.

Great DP, lace and flower embellishment too :)
