Heart 2 Heart Challenges - Polka dots and stripes

Heart 2 Heart Challenges asked us to prepare an artwork using polka dots and stripes.  Woo hoo!  I am going to use the Dotty for You paper!

I have always wanted to try the paper piecing technique but never got a chance to.  This time I'm trying it on the Dotty for You paper.  I've stamped the same image once on each colored paper, then cut out the petals and layer them to make the rose.  My first try.  I know there will be more attempts from now on because it is so fun!

Go to the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog to see what other talented bloggers have come up with.
