So, how about we take a little peek.....

Did I mention, I LOVE sunflowers? My college girlfriends sent me a bouquet of them when my oldest son was born, and I always think of that when I see them in the store.....

If you haven't been hopping along, well then GOSH you've missed a ton of beautiful samples using this set. Be sure to start up at the MFT Blog so that you don't miss a single thing....

I'm really excited about this, very pretty, Who's That Girl.  Her dress is just perfect for paper piecing.  If you're not familiar with how to do this here's a quick step by step.

I stamped Who's That Girl and Die-cut the image.  Colored her arms, the flower, her neckline and the background. Be sure to color *before* you add on any pieced elements! If you assemble, then color, you might have your marker touch the patterned paper and make a mess. Trust me, I've done this and you'll be so bummed to have to start over! 
Using a liquid adhesive (I recommend a Quickie Glue Pen) apply her dress over the stamped image.
But you see, now her arm is covered. Let's fix that....

I simply stamped another image to a piece of white cardstock, colored just the arm and the flower stem and trimmed it out.
Remember to color, then cut, it is WAY easier than trying to color a tiny piece of paper!

 Apply the "extra" arm and flower stem using liquid adhesive and your image is complete!
I love paper piecing, but admittedly, some images are easier to tackle than others.  This one, I'd say is pretty easy to work with! I've used the new Basic Grey Sweet Threads patterned paper for my project today, and this pretty script paper is from Prima.

Do you spy the Die-namics Open Scallop Duo (I've used the larger of the two to mat my main image....) I've added a luscious seam binding bow to finish off my card.
