CCSR Paper Piecing Challenge

Good morning! 

Here is my attempt at the Paper Piecing Challenge using this great range of Clare's.

While I was thinking about making this card, I came up with the idea of swapping the stamps around a little to make another girl out of the existing two in the collection. So by stamping the two girls a few times on to both cardstock and patterned papers, I managed to merge the two together to come up with this hybrid version, complete with paper pieced party outfit in brown and white. I really enjoyed experimenting with this to see if it would work and it did! So meet 'Mixie'.....a 'mixture' of two girls rolled into one! 

 PRODUCTS USED- Clare Curd's Signature Range...Stamping Chic - Party, Sentiments, The Big One papers, 
   Papermania A6 Card blanks - Latte,  Papermania Felt Ribbons, Papermania Adhesive Stones, Papermania Buttons,     Core-dinations Cardstock,  Color Box Fluid Chalk inkpad Dark Brown, Anita's Ribbon Thin Organza, Whispers Brush
