My first attempt at paper piecing!

Why is it that the school holidays fly by so quickly and the terms are Sooooo slow?
Another challenge has just launched at Scrappers Delights and this fortnight the theme is Paper Piecing. I haven't really done this before so it was fun to try something new. I used the fab papers in the Scrappers store (check them out HERE) and also the very manga CU Rabbit Parka 1 which my lovely Bethany helped me to choose :)
I also designed my own paper pieced wall (each "brick is individually stuck on!) which I cut with my Cameo. The letters and ink splat were cut out of vinyl, using my Cameo, I was trying to get a graffitti look!
Finally I added some lace netting to help the skirt stick out.
There are $10 of digis for you to win in the challenge, so why not pop over and join in the fun?
You still have time to use the coupon below!
Happy Crafting!
