Paper Piecing

Hi Everyone, my card today is for
something I always do digitally, but as DT we had a discussion about piecing and for me an idea was born, that wasn't the slightest bit digital, can you believe it?

Anyhow, I die cut the shape and basically filled in the shapes with 3 different double sided papers from the same pad, yep! "proper" paper from a pad! 

I cut the "pants" on the Cameo from an image I found on the web. I cut the diagonal die out twice, from different paper and joined them, then added the other side of the double sided paper to the shapes, one half all the same paper and the other half mixed paper. I rounded the corner with a punch.

sentiment -  Create with TLC
paper pad - Craft Sensations
all dies - Tattered Lace
card - Dovecraft textured
twine - stash
