PAPER PIECING

  This is my first attempt at using paper piecing. Normally I am very OCD at matching papers up to my coloured image so this technique is perfect for me.  I have used one of my trusty CC Designs stamps and teamed it with my lovely Kaisercraft "Le Chateau" papers.  I have paper pieced her hair, boots and dress.  I think next time I'll use paper with a bolder  pattern so that the paper piecing is more obvious.
  I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
