Paper Piecing - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with last weeks Give Thanks Challenge, this weeks challenge is Paper Piecing.

I love the look of paper pieced images, not to mention it's a great way to utilize your scraps!  I however don't have very many open line art images for paper piecing, so this weeks challenge really was a challenge for me. 

After spending what seemed like hours looking for a line art stamp image to piece, here's the card I created inspired by the Authentique November Sketch Challenge.


Stamps - Verses Rubber Stamps Fabulous and Classy

All stamps are from Verses Rubber Stamps Fabulous and Classy set.  The dress from was paper pieced papers from the Authentique Lively collection, the other papers on my card are also from this same collection.  To embellish I added Walnut Brown Vintage Seam Binding that was tied into a Double Bow, a Zva Creative Pink Mini Rose and pieces of a Crystal Flourish (CRX-05CB-103)

Details:
Stamps - Verses Rubber Stamps Fabulous and Classy
Ink - Ranger Coffee Archival, Ranger Gathered Twigs Distress Ink
Card Stock - Vanilla, Wasabi, Espresso
Other - Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Ink Blending Tool, Walnut Brown Vintage Seam Binding, Becca's Peg Bow Maker, Authentique Lively Pattern Paper
