Fashionable Paper piecing

Hi Folks,
Its time for another challenge over at Fashionable Stamping and this time you can have some fun with paper piecing, something I hadn't done for quite a while.
For my DT piece, no pun intended -I decided on an easel card, something else I haven't made in a while,  I  used the Stampendous Rose Corset, stamped with Versafine, and the large Romantic Rectangle was distressed with Spun Sugar DI.  I used a pink spot paper from the Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose collection to stamp the corset,  cut out the corset shape and flowers and added to my image. The darker pink spot backing is a freebie from a magazine purchase,  I stamped the rose part of the corset for a little detail on the base..
My wonderful Teamies have some amazing inspiration for you, so do pop over here to take a look.  Don't forget, our Winner will receive a $20 prize from the lovely Leo at Flonzcraft to spend in his online store.

I am entering this at:
  Dynamic Duos - Monochromatic Pink
  CharismaCardz - Diecuts
  Addicted to Stamps - Easel cards
  Pile it On - Dots
  No Matter Which Challenges - Anything Goes

That's it for now, I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, we seem to have missed the snow, but I know many of you have had more than a covering!  Stay safe, and just think - perfect crafting weather!
