Operation Write Home Mid-Week Throwdown: paper piecing. Visit OWH for details on how you can share your beautiful cards with our folks in the service. When I chose this image, I didn't consider all the little bits and pieces -- I think this will be a one-of-a-kind! When all those little bits were attached, I double embossed the image with clear embossing power -- it really brought out the brilliance of the colors, sealed all the bits, and gave it a more dimensional appearance. The frame is on foam mounts for more dimension.
Stuff I used: Stamps by StacyStamps, Hero Arts, Posh Impression, Costco;
McGill Punch, Sizzix die cut, papers and ribbon from stash.
