CAS-ual Fridays...Love Ya to Pieces

The challenge this week at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a card using paper piecing!  Used a stamp from Hero Arts that was perfect for paper piecing...only I went a little crazy:
 Ok...I'm just gonna say..You could do this a lot easier than I did, but I even paper pieced EACH DOT ON THE FLOWER...well, what can I say...Princess Diaries 1 and 2 were on...my son and I were sitting watching...time to kill...movies I've seen countless times before...so time to cut little circles.  I thought, in the end...it DID look cuter with the added dots...but it's not for everyone!!  This stamp from Hero Arts...this is what it looks like on the block:
so a great stamp for paper piecing.  Used Stampin Up design paper, white and black with a big black vinyl covered brad.  Embossed the yellow strip and used a sentiment from Hero Arts, too.  It was just a yellow kind of day...probably because it was so gray here today!!
My thanks and appreciation for the recognition of last week's entry into CAS-ual Friday's Red Carpet challenge!!  I am honored and thrilled to be A V.I.P...very cool!!!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
