Some pretty pink paper piecing

I'm a bit late entering Less is More this week but it's a favourite technique of mine: paper piecing.  I've used a sweet Phindy's Place image called Spring Dress Mei Mei and I've paper pieced her dress from Basic Grey Indian Summer DP.  Never mind Indian Summer, please can we have a summer first!   The image is matted and layered a few times and a sentiment that came free with a magazine added to it.  I'm also entering CAS-ual Friday's Pretty in Pink Challenge.
My hairdresser asked me to make her a wedding card and I've come up with these two, what do you think?

First one is a Whiff of Joy stamp silver embossed and the second is a Waltzing Mouse sentiment on a Spellbinder mounted onto gold pearlescent card.


  1. Hola Anne, your LIM card is absolutely delicious, beautiful stamp and beautiful paper piecing card.
    My fav. for the wedding of your friend is the first one, very romantic.

  2. Love the paper you have used for the little girls dress, it's such a lively image as well.

  3. Great cards Anne - wedding cards are bound to be well received! The paper piecing as ever is fab!

  4. Hi Anne these are so very pretty I love the clean and simple style so much, I think that I am beginning to adopt this style on my own cards. The image and paper piecing on the first card is ACE they are look fantastic.
