The BasicGrey Challenges blog has done it again. Christine provided a wonderful sketch found here. I had so much fun making this card! I paper pieced even more than I did on yesterday's card; I pieced the dress, pot, leaves, flowers, and even those four small flowers in the corners of the stamp frame (Iused a white gel pen to make the centers white). You may think this much paper piecing is a form of torture, but sometimes it just has to be done :)
decorative papers: BasicGrey Oh, Baby Boy!
stamp: My Favorite Things
cardstock: white Georgia Pacific (Wal-Mart)
flowers: green (Michael's); white (Prima from LFL "lovely friend Lauren")
brad: Stampin' Up! Build-A-Brad
rub-ons: ("for mom") American Crafts Kate font
ribbon: Making Memories woven ribbon
scallop squares: Nestibilities
other: Stampin' Up! dimensionals and scallop border punch
Wow, I love this one even more than the first one (is that possible? hee hee). You are going to town w/the new stamp!..........deanna
When did you stop sleeping? You are on a roll!!!
Your mom will love this card! It's truly beautiful. Never thought about using the boy papers this way. I like it!
Hi June - this is gorgeous - such fabulous colours. I just love those 'Oh Baby Boy' papers, I'm going to have to get me some. (That's when I can find some - I haven't so far lol).

Wow--and I thought of not finding another fabulous headless lady card. This is a great layout, and the paper's colors and prints scream "Mother's Day"! Good job coordinating all the elements which appears to be your natural talent and one of many.
This is awesome, June!! All the piecing is fantastic!
I am totally impressed at the amount of paper piecing going on in this card...and it looks fabulous too! I can't decide which headless lady I like the best :)
This is a fabulous card love the colours and that image is fab hugs Pascale

(& i will be utterly *shocked* if this one DOES NOT WIN the challenge!!!!!)
Crikey, another stunner! What a wonderful visit I'm having to your blog this morning. The choice of colour and papers is superb. The piecing isn't half bad either... it looks beautiful.
