CCEE 1234~Paper Piecing with Art Impressions

I love this Art Impressions Weigh In Set UM4049 from the "Girlfriends" line. They make me laugh BIG TIME! I shouldn't laugh to hard...I could be the one on the end~LOL  I colored it up with Copics  and paper pieced the swimsuits with Cosmo Cricket-Salt Air paper.  Die cut it out with a Spellbinders Labels 8 and popped it up on a Spellbinders Lattice Rectangle that the edges were sponged with Shabby Shutters Distress ink.  The mat paper is also Cosmo Cricket Salt Air that has been sponged with Mustard Seed Distress ink and prettied up with an Ek Success  Lattice border punch, pearls and Grass Seam Binding from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  This is for the CCEE Stampers 1234 challenge which is to do paper piecing on your card. I also used Splitcoaststampers Sketch 399. Today's SC400   is to use any past sketch in honor of 400 challenges! Wow those ladies have been working hard!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!!
