Sweet Stamps- Paper Piercing- Monthly Challenge

The Sweet Stamps Challenge this Month is Paper Piecing.
    From the August/Sept 2013 Technique Junkies newsletter, I used a fun technique called Blocked Background.

  I stamped the image on the DP twice, and made the petals dimensional, then added some shimmer with a Sakura Gelly roll pen.

 I sure hope you will come join us for the challenge- it runs for an entire month- from 9/15 thru 10/14- so you have plenty of time to join us.

Here are the Sweet Stamps products I used on my card:

I hope you will join in the challenge!  You can enter once and you have a chance of winning a Technique Junkies CD, and if you use a Sweet Stamps image- you will receive an additional chance to win! The winner is chosen by so everyone has a chance to win!

We have a weekly challenge as well- you have a chance to WIN $20 of items from the store at  Sweet Stamps.
