LOTV Dt Card

Hello everyone, a warm but not so sunny day. Been up to my eyes with the chores for the last four hours but needed a break so thought I'd best post my card for this weeks LOTV. The theme this week is paper piecing and I used my new Ketto stamp and paper pieced her dress. Coloured the rest with Copic Markers and Spica Pens. Papers are from The Black Market Paper Society and I think they are gorgeous. Not done a red/black combo before but think its pretty striking. Flowers and gems from stash and the the coils I made are from the stems from when I chop the flower heads off. Seemed a waste to throw them out.

Anyway, must dash, a busy bee today and a viewing soon, so hope everyone is well. If you can spare a moment to look at what other gorgeous cards the rest of the DT have come up with, that would be great and we'd love it of you could take part in this weeks challenge. You dont even need LOTV products. I love visiting your blogs and seeing your latest creations.
