Our challenge over at the KKS blog this week courtesy of talented Krafty Girl Jessie is Paper-Piecing! I decided to use the ever glamorous Lana...I adore this stamp. :) I used some "Tea for Two" paper from Cosmo Cricket for paper-piecing her dress and for all the paper layers. I really wanted to add stitching to my card, but I keep forgetting to pick up more thread! I always feel my cards look so bare without it, lol. The paper edges were distressed with my scissors and sponged with brown ink. For embellishments, I used an MFT Die for the flourish, a few pearl sprays and some flowers by Kaisercraft and Prima. I also added some brown Viva Decor Pearls.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, RV95 Hair: E50, E31, E33, E37, E59 Shading on dress: BG70, BG72, BG75, C5, C7
