Paper Piecing at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hello folks, I hope you're keeping nice and warm in this horrible wintery weather, what on earth has happened to Spring? Still its just the weather to do some crafting so we shouldn't complain really lol. We've got a new challenge starting over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time our theme is 'Paper Piecing', chosen by yours truly (goodness knows why as its not a technique i use a lot). Our lovely sponsor Leo from Flonzcraft has a fabby prize for our lucky winner so I hope you're going to ink up those stamps and join us.

For my card i've created a background using PanPastels, Maimeri iridescent medium through a prima mask and Stampers Anonymous stamps. I stamped the sentiment from Non sequitur with black stazon. 

The focal image is from Chocolate Baroque, I stamped and coloured her with Graph'It Markers and then stamped her again o some gorgeous Prima Firefly paper and embossed with black EP. I paper pieced her dressed and then stamped another dress from the same stamp set on some more prima paper, cut it out and popped it on a little beaded coat hanger.

To finish off i've added some seambinding, die cut swirls and a paper rose from Wild Orchid Crafts.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Brown Sugar: anything goes
Charisma: die cuts
Polkadoodles: embossing
Vickie's Challenge: anything goes
