Saturated Canary Challenge DT Card - Paper Piecing

Hello again, wow 2 posts in 1 day..............I think I need lie down, all this typing wears me out lol

Well its time for a new challenge over at Saturated Canary & this fortnight our lovely Jane chose the theme, we want to see your.........
PAPER PIECING
.......I love paper piecing although dont do it that often but its perfect for using scraps of paper. My first attempt the paper didnt show up as patterned on the photo, which is why its a different pic on the challenge blog. So I redid the paper piecing bit............
I've used the gorgeous MME 'Lost & Found - Portabello Road' I lurve the colours in this pad. I inked the edges with Pumice Stone distress ink & machine stitched them.

All the flowers are from WOC & the pearls are form my stash.

The blue lace & the lace with pearls attached are also from my stash.

The image is the fabulous latest release of rubber stamps by Krista, this one is my fave & she is called 'Breeze' & I coloured her with copics & paper pieced her dress with scraps of paper.
Colours used are........
E11, E21, E00, E000, R20 - Skin
E57, E55, E53, E51 - Hair
B97, B95, B93, B91 - Dress
The frame around her is Spellbinders Floral Ovals. Teresa also has the other stamps from this fabulous release, pop on over to here.

Inisde was decorated to compliment the front as always. I added a 'Bark Heart' then added a Whimsy sentiment on top, I cut out the oval centre & just used that. I also used another Whimsy Postage stamp from the same collection up the top left corner directly onto the paper. The half circle is a Marianne die. 

Pop on over & look at my teamies fabulous creations..........they are such a talented bunch of girlies ;0)

I also made Lime & Coconut cake yesterday afternoon...........
............would you believe I made 2 & this is all that is left..........how does it go so fast, Ben & Megan havn't even had any yet. Will have to make one just for them I think lol.

Well I'm off now as its tea time. Thank you soooooooooo much for stopping by, will be round to see you soon.

Also my earlier card here I have now listed the colours used.
