Basic Gre DT - Paper Piecing

We'd like to see some paper piecing on your creations at Basic Grey this week. 
The fab prize for this challenge which has been very generously donated by our one and only sponsor Simon Says Stamp, is a fab $25 spending spree to the  Simon Says Stamp Superstore.



I've used the beautiful Kioshi papers from the Simon Says Stamp store, I usually use a patterned paper for piecing but decided to use a plain one this time, I quite like the results. The blue of her sash and bow (although they tend to look grey) are from the Lily Kate. The delightful image is from DewDrop Craftz and designed by Carly. She is coloured with Copics and the edges are stamp with peg stamps (Peruvian Lily) with the branches drawn by hand. The swirls are a BossKut die, the flowers a Nellie Snellon punch & emboss and the stamen a Woodware punch.  The sentiment and scroll is from an SU set my lovely friend Mandi sent me, the glittering with Crystal stickles and the pearls  ribbon are from my stash.


Well I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and the weather is kind to you, it doesn't look too promising hereabouts.


EDITED
 The full details for the DT call are now on the challenge blog just above this weeks challenge details - so come folks get entering,  we're all really looking forward to having some new playmates.
