Paper Piecing Yes

Good Morning Friends,

Hope today finds you all well. We have a new challenge for you over at Sweet Stampin' this week.
It is paper piecing, now before you shake your head and say "what", I want you to know that is is my first attempt at paper piecing and I must say it was not really that difficult. Basically you stamp your image twice, once on the the paper you will color on and another time on pattern paper. Then you cut out the parts you want from the pattern paper and apply it your plain image. How simple?

Before I show you my card, I must tell you we have two wonderful sponsors. Our ever generous monthly sponsor:

 Also we have our weekly sponsor who is also giving away a voucher.

 So here is my card! I paper pieced the adorable polka dot awning and the heart in the sentiment.
So easy you must try this. My image is a digital image from Pollycraft. I colored the rest with copics. The butterflies I made with a Martha Stewart punch. The paper and ribbons were in my stash.

So I hope you will go to Sweet Stampin' and check out all the DT member's creations, they are amazing. I also hope you will give paper piecing a try this week and enter our challenge. Come on now you could win one of these great prizes!

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think about this.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

I am entering this in the Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge:  Spots.
