Creative Belli Challenge #127

Hello everyone and welcome to another Creative Belli Challenge!!! The challenge this two weeks is to use paper piecing.  Remember, the spirit of the Belli challenges is to encourage you to use your OLD and FORGOTTEN embellishments!
For my card today, I used the Rubbernecker Fashion Lady Jeanne #494-07 stamp....it was paper pieced with papers from My Minds Eye Lost and Found paper and Soft Sky was sponged on the edges while the image was still in the Nestabilities die. The skin was colored with copics, sewing was done around the background edges, a doily was added to the lower half and lace was added to the side of the image. The sentiment was from Rubbernecker's Fashion Icon's set #456  and  the seam binding, button, and twine finish it off.

Recipe: Stamps: Rubbernecker
Paper: White, Soft sky, My Minds Eye Lost and Found dp
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Soft Sky
Accessories: Nestabilies, Lace, Doily, Sewing Machine, Seam Binding, Twine, Button, SU Punch for sentiment


This is also for a few other challenges:
1. Die Cuttin Divas - vintage or shabby chic
2. Scrap Creations - it's a girl thing
3. Hooked on Crafts Challenge - ribbon and lace
4. Kaboodle Doodles Challenge - use a doily
5. Addicted to Stamps - stitching

Be sure to stop by the Creative Belli Blog to see what the other Belli Girls made for you today....you will find lots of awesome inspiration!!! If you upload a card to Splitcoast, PCP, Stamp TV or another online gallery be sure to add CBC127 in the keywords section.


Thanks for stopping by...have a great day!!!!!
