Creative Inspirations DT card- Paper Piecing

Boy have I got a funny story about this (some of you may have read about this in one of my past posts however thought I would share again).
Since being fairly new to the blogging community & challenges, when I first came across a paper piecing challenge, i actually thought it said paper "piercing" there I was following this tutorial about how to do this "piercing" thing, only to go back & read the challenge more slowly to find it says paper 'piecing'. THAT made much more sense considering the whole 'color, cut & paste part of the image onto the original image' task!!!
What a knob I am sometimes....hey I said sometimes!!!

Welcome to the Creative Inspirations Challenge where your task is to PAPER PIECE your creation!
Debbie from The Crafy Pad is sponsoring us for the next two weeks by offering up a stamp from her New Release line (either 3 digis or 1 rubber)

I have chosen an image from the Prairie Fairy Design store called Fairy Sleepy. I paper pieced her dress, by reprinting the digital image onto some DP. I colored the remainder of my image with watercolor pencils, baby oil & blending stumps. I added a bit of stitching to the one side of the card.

Why only one side of the card, you may ask yourself? Heck, why your mind thinking hey!?!? hhmmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,what will your creation be this week.
Pls come out and join us at the Creative Inspirations Challenge (for the next 2 weeks) & drop off a little love for each of the other girls on the DT!!! C'mon, we all want some love!!!

'Sweet Fairy Dreams to all of you'
