Paper piecing at Crafty Ann's

Hi there, a very quick post as I've got internet gremlins, hubby is in hospital and I don't know if I'm on my a**e or my elbow at work so apologies for being awol this week. Hopefully I'll catch up with my blogland buddies at the weekend but before I rush off to work here's my DT card for the new challenge over at Crafty Ann's Challenge where the theme is paper piecing

I've used papers from Crafty Ann's scrummy Tempting Turquoise collection. The bp has some flitter glued and gilded swirls added to it using a stamp from Chocolate Baroque and I've used one of the other bps from the collection to paper piece the dress. I've combined Anns' papers with stamps from Joanna Sheen. You can seethe lovely lady better here, she's actually a bride but I've cut her veil off for this card. I've used some gold vellum for her bodice and underskirt.

To finish off I've added some gold stickles to the flowers on the backing paper and some gold ribbon. 

Right, I'm off to earn a crust, have a happy Friday
thanks for popping by

  1. Hi Claire, your card is gorgeous and thank you for tip about removing veils, it does not look like a wedding image at all now - great idea! A x

  2. Wow Claire, this is STUNNING, STUNNING, STUNNING. Hope hubby is OK. Hugs Suzanne

  3. Oh wow - this is gorgeous Claire. I've got that oval JS stamp and hardly used it. Love the way you've used it behind the image.
    Thinking of you lots and sending cyber hugs.
