Today was nothing as exciting as yesterday, but finally got a much needed haircut!!!
I finally had a chance to create a card for today's SCS Featured Stamper Shannon, aka stuebner. She has an amazing gallery! I chose this card as my inspiration.
I chose WinoBella to create this card, and learned to do a new stamping technique called paper piecing. I stamped WinoBella on DP and cut out the dress only. I then stamped the image on CS, and placed DP dress over the dress image...sort of like paper dolls...
When I was done with the card I thought it would be a very appropriate card for a bridal shower... What do you think?

Marty at A Stroll Thru Life is hosting It's A Cloche Party.
Please visit her blog for all of the fun and exciting Fall decorating cloche ideas, and for a complete list of all the blog participants.
I don't own any real cloches, but I improvised. I used my Princess House cakeplate as a cloche and placed my Charming Tails Autumn figurine. DH helped me arranged the fruit vignette.

The stamped doodle is from SU! Doodle This stamp set inked in SU! Mauve Mist. The stamped image is light enough that when a message is written on the note card, it can easily be read.
The colored CS is embossed with the CB Perfectly Paisley EF, and then I sanded the embossed paper with a SU!'s sanding block. I used the sharp edge of my scissors to distressed the edges of the CS as well.
