City Crafter - Paper Piecing

Regular visitors to my blog may have noticed that I love paper-piecing. So I was delighted when my teammie Ros, at City Crafter Challenge Blog, chose it for this week's challenge.
I do have a Silhouette electronic cutting machine, but for paper-piecing I just get in there with the scissors. Here, I've combined my Silhouette and hand cutting. The houses and sentiment are a cutting file, but I drew it onto the card by replacing the blade with a sketch pen. The dress was cut by hand, but I cut out the girl on the stool (Heather Ellis digi) with the Silhouette, and coloured her with Promarkers. 

I hope you'll join us at City Crafter , see the work of our DT and Guest Designer Oribella , and link up your own paper-pieced creation .
