Allsorts - paper piecing and piercing

School's out for the summer and it's time for another challenge at Allsorts, woohoo!

The theme is paper piecing and piercing. I tend to pierce my cards all the time, using a marking wheel (made for use on fabric but I'm not picky hehe) so that part wasn't very tricky and piecing is an easy technique that gives a cool result. I made a wedding card and stamped the dress twice so that I could cut out the skirt and make two layers on the card. It looks a bit clean and simple right now but the intention is to put the names of the happy couple in the white spot, I will as soon as a happy couple turns up :)
