Paper Smooches May challenge: Flowers

When I saw this month's Paper Smooches challenge, I remembered this cute die of theirs, and decided to do some paper-piecing with it!

supplies: white and black cardstock, MFT Lucky Prints paper pad, Paper Smooches Adorable Array and Birthday Words dies, Simon's Stitched Rectangle and Wavy Scallop Stitches dies, Doodlebug pink pearls, Stick It

I love pink and green together, and these tiny prints worked well to inlay the various parts of the flower die.  Using the Stick It makes it lots easier, too, to secure everything down nice and tight: after I die-cut the flower and words from my white panel, I removed the die-cuts and  added some Stick It to the back of the panel.  Then I die-cut from the various other papers and paper-pieced them back into the design.

When everything was finished I added the scalloped edge at the bottom, and mirrored it with another in black, then popped the panel over the cute heart print paper, and sprinkled some pearls.

Thanks for stopping by!
