Paper Piecing Throwdown

***This is my 2nd post of the day.  Scroll down for my Tuesday Trigger post!***

Another card from my WCMD weekend. This was made using the colours from the Colour Throwdown challenge.  I used a Woodware USA stamp and did some paper piecing. This works perfectly for the Wee Memories challenge this week as we are to use our favourite technique on our project and I love me some paper piecing.  :)  And, surprise, surprise (say it with me now!) - I'm going to enter this in the 4 Crafty Chicks and Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes challenges.  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and managed to squeeze in some crafty time.  I've had a blast checking out what everyone has been up to - so much amazing inspiration!      
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill Basics, (Lucky Limeade, Calypso Coral, Poppy Parade, Chocolate Chip) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Image) Woodware USA, (Sentiment from Asian Fusion) PTI
Inks:  (VersaMark & VersaFine Onyx Black) Tsukineko
Embossing Powder:  (Seafoam White) Ranger
