Thinking of you

I made this card to join the CPS 136 challenge, for the first time.... I do hope it meets the sketch... And this card os for my sister's 40th birthday... Hope she likes it...

Cardstock embossed with Cuttlebug Machine (3 kinds of folders)
Stamp : Hero Arts (sentiment "thinking of you) & Inkadinkado Doodle Flowers (for the flower)
Punch : Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch

Thanks for looking, my friends...

Paper Piecing - thanks for all you do

This week HA challenge, paper piecing, is actually quite similar to Oshie. In Oshie, we need to cut part by part of the image and then wrap it with the patterned paper. While in paper piecing, we just cut it and adhere it. This is quite challenging for me, as it needs accuracy in cutting, and moreover, it needs neatness.
This is the front card.

Take a closer look at the mathryoska paper doll here. I used Chirimen paper which originally is from Japan.

For the inside of the card, I used my newest stamp. It just arrived the other day. Dot Flourish from Hero Arts. And I also stamped the sentiment.

Thanks for looking....
