Paper Piecing for SFTW!

When I stamp, I often forget that paper piecing can really add so much texture and color to your image. And, I'm not always in the mood to color that day!
 
 
For the challenge this week at
we are highlighting "FLOWERS!"
 
I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot of flowers and Valentine's on the girls' projects,
so I  limited the stamped and paper flowers and went with a flower garden theme.
 

 
The image is one from "Sparkle Creations" that I've had for quite some time.
Even though Sparkle, the owner, has closed shop for now, due to have a baby sometime this summer,
I wanted to create a card showcasing the way pattern paper piecing can add so much
to a simple image.
Also, the twine and tiny rhinestone earring make her so adorable!
So, don't forget to get out those tiny scissors and create!
 
Enter your own project at
and win a great prize (sponsor is a surprise!)
 
I would love to know you were here, so please leave a comment!
We get so many wonderful entries, but I'd like to know who's out there reading this!
 
Have a great Valentine's weekend!
~Jan~

This is so pretty. Have to say I admire your patience with paper piercing. I don`t have that kind of patience.
