Papertake Challenge - Stripes - I Decided On Paper Piecing It's Been Soooo Long.....

I decided to take a break from stamping today and go back to my other passion Paper Piecing....... I love the fact that you can take scraps of card and paper and create the most beautiful images and any body can do it..... i'm lucky enough to have the whole set of HOTP Paper Piecing Books i've had them for years now and i'm constantly referring back to them they are soooooo yummy...but there are free templates every where these days i've found some of the best in PaperCraft Inspirations i subscribe to it and Jo Kill produces the most gorgeous creations using paper piecing, there is the cutest groom paper piecing i've ever seen in the magazine this month, you can get lots of templates on line at http://www.papercraftinspirationsmagazine.co.uk/page/papercraft if you've not given it a go then i can highly recommend it....
Any way the challenge over at Papertake this week is to use stripes and it inspired me to create this card using stripes and paper piecing.... What do you think? Is she cute????????? the challenge is still running and will be until a new one is posted on Monday so if you want to give it a bash there is still time. You'll find the link to Papertake on the left hand side of my blog under Challenge Yourself....
