La La Land GD card ~ Paper Piecing

Good morning ladies,
I can't believe it's December tomorrow,
I'm busy putting out tree up today.
Really need to get organised with everything else.
Can't believe I've been  and bought some crimbo cards ~ Yes I know, it's terrible.
I've also made quite a few Christmas cards too, but some of those went as samples.

I have another La La Land card to share today.
The inspirational theme this week is

PAPER PIECING

I hardly ever do paper piecing, but I think it works really well with this gorgeous girl.
 I have used,
Marianne ~ English Rose & Snowflake
DooHickey ~ Rose Leaf
Cheery Lynn ~ Deco Corner, I have heat embossed this.
Noor! ~ Embossing edge ~ used as a hinge
Thank you for popping by
