The Cutie Pies are Paper Piecing!

Hi to you all, and I hope you've had a great weekend.
So, its time again for a new challenge with The Cutie Pies
Our theme this time is
Paper Piecing 
  if you've been a follower of my blog for a while, you'll know that this a technique that I have a soft spot for, as it takes me back to playing with paper dolls when I was a little girl (I bet I'm not the only one who couldn't wait, every week, to cut up their Bunty comic!!!!)
Anyway, back from my mooch down memory lane and onto my DT card
 The image I've used here is from the first of our lovely sponsors: 

and one lucky winner will receive four gorgeous Flat Friends images of their choice
but not only that, one randomly chosen winner will also receive
this wonderful prize from Stamp and Create

For the card I've used:
Image: from Flat Friends, coloured with promarkers, the paper used for her dress and also the background is a freebie download by Zoe Pearn from Sweet Shoppe designs. I have also added a little Ice Crystal stickles to the dress and around the edge.
The border punch is from Martha Stewart and the brads are from a papermania capsule set. The ribbon is from my local haberdashery.
My lovely Cutie teamies have also made some stunning cards for this challenge - to check them out and join in the challenge, click the link at the top!
