Lawnscaping Challenge #20

It's been a while since I made paper-pieced cards! As soon as I saw the challenge over Lawnscaping , I know I can't wait to play with my new stamps!
 The Ornate Ornaments are perfect for my old stash of Basic Grey paper! 
Merry Christmas
Here is the close-up. The Liquid Perfect Pearl Dimensional Glue is so much fun to use!

If you haven't tried paper-piecing lately, perhaps it's time to give it a go!? The big stamps (with lots of blank space) always work beautifully! I feel like being a match-maker when I do paper-piecing! All you have to do is find the right MATCH!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
