A Parisian Birthday Card

Isn't Parisian a cool description??  Since the Rogue Red Head's Rebel challenge #31 is paper piecing I had to take the challenge......right?  Actually I was over at Hobby Lobby, wondering around with my nifty 50% of one item coupon and I saw this roll of ribbon.  Well the lights flashed and the bells went off! ( and people were beginning to stare)  I knew right then exactly what I was going to do.  Back over to the pretty papers I flew and found just what I needed.  On an embossed background I stamped one of the Milliner Misses plate RRD007, then pieced in the pink paper hat with black and white trim. I did use a pen for the top of the hat and the brim.  Her jacket was pieced with the same black and white print that is also the background print.  The pink ribbon was added and over that the black Eifel Tower ( my new TH die, LOVE IT)  The sentiment is from the RRD plate RRD011 Nature Notes, stamped on pink and two black rhinestones were added to finish it off.  Her face and hair were done with colored pencil and OMS.
I know one should not brag, but I just love the way this card turned out.
You have until February 2 to enter this challenge and a chance to WIN a $15.00 (US) voucher for the Rogue Redhead Stamps........what are you waiting for?

So now I'm off to work on some 2014 Christmas cards, using my new plate RRD014 Christmas Cheer stamps. What Christmas? it's only January I know but there is something NEW going on over at Rogue Redhead Designs Blog  It started Sunday!
