*SweetStamps September Technique Month

Good morning-
Are you ready for this month's technique challenge over at SweetStamps!!
I hope you are because it's a fun one and one that I love doing often. 
This months technique is all about:
Paper Piecing
I really love how my card today came together.  Love all the colors matted on kraft cardstock.
For my card, I am using Baby Bear 219 and With Love 3041
I used Soleil by Basic Grey patterned paper for my entire card!!!
The patterned and colors are very non-traditional in pattern, so I was determined to make it work!!
****A tip when Paper Peicing, small or big peices of paper.  Before adhering you peices together, run a black marker along the edges of your paper. This will give a more complete and clean finish to your project.****

So I hope you have enjoyed my project and will join us this month.
We all love paper piecing and I can not wait to see, what you create for us.
