Paper piecing Challenge

Tonight's card is for my Friday Blast from the Past Challenge over at Stamp TV. This week I am asking everyone to create a project that has paper piecing on it. This is a fun technique and one of my favorites. Gina has a tutorial video on paper piecing, which you can find here.
For my card I used Basic Grey's Origin papers along with Gina's Green Apple, Chocolate Brown, Tan Leather and White pl papers.
The sunflowers are from Gina K's A Year of Flowers and the butterfly is from her Picture It stamp set. Both the flowers and the butterfly were paper pieced. I used copics Y02 and E31 to add some shading to them.
The sentiment is from Lovely Labels and is cut out and matted with oval nesties.

I adding stitching around the pattern paper and kept the embellishments simple with just a ribbon bow.
Here is the inside. The sentiment is from Elegant Post.

I would love it if you would play along with me this week! If you do, please be sure to upload your project to the stamp TV Gallery using the tag STVBPSLS12 so you are entered in the drawing for a free stamp set of your choice and good luck.

Thank you for stopping by! I really appreciate it!
