This is a card I made a couple of weeks ago when I bought this dear elephant stamp by Woodware.
I really enjoy doing paper piecing and it's also a great opportunity for using up scraps of pretty papers.
I'm afraid I don't know what these papers are as they were in my scrap box but I think they are from the same set. The backing paper is actually well "gutted".
After paper piecing the elephant I put the card through my Cuttlebug in an embossing folder then lightly inked the raised areas.
I pricked round the edges and added faux stitching and that's where I think I should have finished. But no - I had to go on and stamp the little black flowers and put orange dots in the centres.
I would like to enter my card into the Fab n Funky Challenge #295 which this week is Paper Piecing.
