You Want A {Paper} Piece of Me???

Hi everyone! Happy Tuesday!!!!

Here is my card for today's Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumi Challenge, "You Want A {paper} Piece Of Me?", hosted my moi! LOL!! I told all the girls that the name of this challenge must be spoken in my NY accent...(giggle!!).

This card is also for the Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, TESC87, from this past Friday!!

The requirements for my challenge were as follows:

The Challenge: Use paper piecing on your card!!Required Element: Fall OR Christmas Colors!!Restricted Element: None...that's how I roll ;)

You can see what the other DD/DDA girls that played along have done with this challenge HERE.

For my card, I used this UBER sweet ballerina Cuppie from Trick or Sweet II from Taylored Expressions! There are few things in life that I adore more than my Cuppies...but a Cuppie as a ballerina? I am IN LOVE!!!

ALL the cardstock, patterned paper and the super fab brad on my card are from the Halloween Key Ingredients, also from Taylored Expressions! The patterned paper in this kit, Eerie by Basic Grey, was also what I used to paper piece my ballerina's ensemble. I colored the rest of Cuppie with Copic Markers!!

To finish off my card, I used my latest obsession yet again...my sewing machine! ALL the layers were sewn, even my focal circle layer...that was hard though!!

Thanks SOOOO much for stopping by!!
