*Playing in Paradise #18*

I wasn't too sure about doing "Paper Piecing" this week for the challenge over at the Scrapbookers Paradise blog as I've never paper pieced before in my life.  Thankfully Shannon (see her blog link with the CalGals) talked me through some ideas so I inked up a great flower stamp and created some flowers out of patterned paper.
Items Used:
*Cardstock: PTI White; Stampin' Up! Marina Mist
*Images: Verve; A Muse
*Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
*Tools: Big Shot; Sizzix embossing folder; Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 6
*Embellishments: Kaiser rhinestones
*Challenges:  Playing In Paradise #18

I stamped the flower two times on each patterned paper and have layered the two pieces together for each flower, bending up the petals on the top layer just a little bit to add some dimension.

Please pop over to see what the other members of the Challenge Team came up with for this challenge (their links are on the left side under the Scrapbookers Paradise Challenge.

I hope you'll find some time to play along this week!
