Are you ready to hop with Mo's Dream Team?


Photo

Yes, it's time to hop with Mo's Dream Team and this month the theme of Paper Piecing has been chosen by our fabulous Mina.  Hopefully you should have arrived here from Kerttu's Blog, who I know will have worked her usual magic, but if you didn't and want to start at the beginning, then hop on back here to Mina's Blog.

For my card, I used an older Mo image called Kimono Girl which you can find here in Mo's store.  Not the easiest of images to paper piece but I quite like the finished look!

My papers are from Stampin Up and in some ways it was a shame to use it as it covers up the beautiful design on her Kimono. 
I've also used a few dies/punches from various companies as follows:
Memory Box - Lavish Corner and Tessatina Border
Marianne Dies - the corner die
Martha Stewart - Butterflies
Stampin Up - Mini label punch for the sentiments
The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and stash.


Your next stop on the hop is over to the awesome Debby Y, who is our resident queen of paper piecing so I just know she's going to have something amazing to share with us.  
The full order of the hop is shown below - you  can find the links  to their blogs on my sidebar.

Mina, Pops, Jak, Gretha, Kerttu, Julie, Debby.Y, Heidy, Alice, Vili, Alexandra, Anneke,

 Danielle, Kaly


Well, I hope you have fun hopping - and thanks for hopping in!!

I am CONVINCED I commented on this card (and many of the others) already. I remember seeing how prettily you had coloured the cat and how perfect the paper piecing of her kimono was. And it's simply not possible that I had not commented on your cards since June!!! It's lovely!! Hugs, Lesley
