Paper Piecing

This past week was the My Favorite Things release, and with any good release is a great challenge! This month MFT was all about paper piecing so I decided to go to town and stretch my possibilities, I pulled out my Here's the Scoop stamp set and got to work! I waded through my paper over and over again and I just kept pulling out this black and white dotted paper and I finally gave in. I decided to use the dotted paper for the couch and I cut out all the little pieces then colored them in seperatly. Then to add another layer I added the criss cross paper in the background as wall paper. I know its a little bold, but I had so much fun with the bright colors contrasting and all the pink, I even went a little over board. Then to complete the card I added three little scoops of ice cream as embellishments. Enjoy!
