Love, wish and dream

'Paper Piecing is our new Challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
Hope you will pop over for all the details, read about the fantastic prize on offer from our sponsor Flonzcraft  and see what we have been making.
I don't often do paper piecing, but it is great fun. For this card I limited the papers I used to 2,
using them for layering blocks  as well as the dress.
The stamps I used are from Creative Expressions by Sam Poole.
 First layer was stamped on to an old book page and I highlighted the wings with   distress stickles .
The words I think are Stampers Anonymous, this was edged with  gold Frantage powder.
I used distress inks to stamp the base layer and the shading, Mustard seed and Tumbled glass.

I thank you all for stopping by, your comments are always appreciated.
