GDT for the Cutie Pies: Paper Piecing

Hello there again! How's your day going? Mines okay - managed my run again this morning - so thats got to be good! I've already got 10.2 miles on the weekly clock and its only Monday lunchtime (managed 6 yesterday - yoo hoo!).Just wanted to say hello to followers old and new - there's a few new faces on my list - I hope you enjoy sharing my crafty journey and that you're not disappointed!Thanks for coming along for the journey!

So I guess you've already seen somewhere that the challenge at the Cutie Pies is paper piecing - I just love this techique and enjoyed using a crafty sentiments stamp to make my card. Here it is:

Isn't she adorable? The stamp is called  Catwalk and you can get her here. She is coloured with promarkers.  The papers came from a giveaway from the lovely Kath - thanks again Kath and the blingy buttons are from the Hobby House. The die cut is spellbinders and the flowers are from WOC.
