Whiff of joy & Stampin for the weekend!

The challenge over on the Whiff of Joy blog is paper piecing. I have never done this before and I was determined to use my new stamp that arrived with my candy that I won on Tara's Blog. I used a printed Vellum from papermania (ornate floral) for the dress. Papers are also papermania exquisite collection. Ribbon and flowers from my stash.
Stampin for the weekends theme is to use 1 of 3 song titles for some inspiration. I chose the first A whiter shade of pale.

Here is a closer look at the paper piecing on the dress.
And of course the inside too! These new WOJ stamps are stunning and fast becoming my
favorite images. I have a wish list as long as my arm. My daughter has already said she wants this one as she is going to a wedding reception soon.
