Paper Piecing With Paper Sundaes

This week at Paper Sundaes, our challenge theme is 'Paper Piecing', and we are sponsored by Heather Ellis, the creator of Pure Innocence.  I absolutely love her girls, whether from her digital store, or from My Favorite Things.  My card today uses a digi from her store.

I might have gone a bit overboard with the paper piecing... I've actually paper pieced her dress, the note paper, her arm over-top the dress and notepaper so that it would have a correct dimensional feel, and also the red envelope.  I've also used my copics to add some shading to all of the paper piecing to match the shading in the coloured bits.

I've finished it up with a sentiment from Close to My Heart, some stitching, and added a few jewels, but overall tried to keep it pretty clean and simple.

I don't think it is too much, the kraft cardstock is so simple that the extra paper piecing is perfect!
