Paper Piecing at LCI

Good Morning All!

Did you all have a great weekend!  I had a great one and feel quite depressed today being back at work!!  Still its a short week so that's something! 

I am hosting the new challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink this fortnight and the theme is:

"Paper Piecing"

I don't do this technique often enough so thought this would make me do it!  I really like the effect!  Here is my card:




Now I haven't had Nikki out for some time, and she is the reason why I am now stamping so I thought I must use her today!  This is "Wine Stool Nikki", all the Nikki range, and others, can be found at the LCI store here and if you are quick you will be able to purchase any of these cling stamps at half price! 

I paper pieced her dress with the gorgeous background papers from Maja Designs - Vintage Summer.  I added some Marianne flower ribbon and mulberry flowers.  Some glamour dust and pearls to finish off.  I wish I looked like her whilst sipping my champagne!  

I hope you like my card.  Please hop over to the LCI challenge blog to see all the inspiration from the Ladybugs.  

Have a great day and will see you soon.  

(PS - watch out soon for my birthday candy!)

Love and Hugs
