Paper Pieced Flower

The Less is More Challenge this week is paper piecing ....which I find so much harder than even a one layer!  Firstly, it took me ages to find a suitable stamp, but eventually I decided on a Personal Expressions Zendoodles stamp 'Flower'.
The patterned paper I used for the petals, flower centre, leaves and stem were from my box of oddments.  The green Promarker I used is a pretty good match IRL, but looks totally different in the photo - so frustrating! 

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:

  5. It looks like you've colored in a stamp - I can't see the paper piecing at all! Great job!

  6. I tried to comment last night but Mr Blogger wasn't having any of it! Anyway, a really lovely elegant card. Your paper piecing is beautiful and those pearls set it off perfectly. I've not managed to come up with anything at all for this week's LIM challenge - I only have one stamp suitable for piecing and I don't like it very much!
