Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Co.

This lady from the Out on the Town set made me think of the paper dolls I use to play with when I was a little girl. Every time I do paper piecing, it reminds me of the dresses I use to create for my paper dolls, so I had to use that technique for my card. I made a long skinny card and used the sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers set called
Be a Showoff 

This is the song I was listening to while I was making this card. Thought I would share it with you. Hope you are having a great time blog hopping, and that you have a blessed day today.
