I know I am late to the game, but I have resisted paper piecing for some reason. Well, I decided to try it today on my Waltzingmouse Stamps balloon from the Half Pint Heroines stamp set.

I used paper scraps for my paper piecing. The sentiment also came from the Half Pint Heroines set. The ribbon is from RRR and the lace is from Inspired by Stamping. My ribbon is the element that goes over the edge.

I am entering this card in these challenges:
