This weeks’s challenge was Paper Piecing.   The pin cushion was cut from red flocked paper and the thimbles were cut from silver embossed metallic.  Yes, the stick pins are REAL, as are the buttons!  🙂

Recipe:   Stampa Rosa image and sentiment, stamped with Momento Tuxedo black; Red flocked DP and Silver metallic emossed paper; Background DP is by Cosmo Cricket, Twist & Shout; Mice colored with Copics; Stick pins, dimenstionals, ribbon, buttons, floss, white signo pen.
