Jolly Camille

This is for TGF's Farm Fresh Fridays Christmas in July and Paper Sundaes' paper piecing challenges. 
The base is retired SU color Creamy Caramel with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip papers.  The printed paper is from DCWV christmas stack.  The image is TGF's Wild Sprout Camille (Bella to all you Twihards) and is paper pieced using Blushing Bride, Moxxie textured paper, and matching scraps of the card base.  I stamped the image in Jet Black on all the papers, then cut and reassembled like a jigsaw puzzle.  I added touches of shadow and details using sharpie and colored pencils, then doodled around the edge of the image with words of the season. The border is Martha Stewart's antique lace punch.   Last, I added a bit of white grosgrain ribbon from Michael's.  Inside is matching scraps.  Thanks for looking!  April
