Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 279

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 279
- piece it together (paper piecing) -

Here's my card for the design team.

I want to thank Robyn's Fetish for sponsoring this challenge.
Well, this was new to me...paper piecing digital stamps. I had
no idea how to do it, soooo, I experimented and this is what I
did. I printed my image twice. I cut out the heart, that is what
I paper pieced, and traced it on my pattern paper and cut it
out. Once I colored my main image, using Copic markers,
I then glued the pattern piece to it. I think it worked nicely.
I added a dotted edge around the image and stamped "happy"
in the heart. I used some lacquer for bear's noses. :-)
I used a dotted ribbon and matching colored threads for a 
bow and stamped "valentine's day" and put my
card together and that was it!!

Still time to get involved with the current challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.
