OCC...Paper Piecing Challenge

Happy Saturday Peeps!!! 
It is time for another Our Creative Corner Challenge. 
This week I am again your  hostess challenge and my challenge to you is:

Paper Piecing, Use some kind of paper piecing on your card or project this week. Stamp something and use DSP to piece an element of the stamp or paper piece you Background. In addition NO ribbon and only one embellishment is allowed.

I decide to "piece" my card. I had been making some quilt cards the last couple of weeks and thought a set would be nice for Valentine's Day.
These cards are 4-1/4 inch squares. I uses some retired Stampin Up paper. I wanted to keep them simple to highlight the "pieced quilt block" which fit the challenge to only use 1 embellishment and NO ribbon.

Each pieced block was embossed using the Vintage Wall Embossing Folder. I used Pretty in Pink, Real Red and Chocolate Chip Card stock. 

The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. 
The brads are also some Stampin Up retired items.

Be sure to check the Our Creative Corner Blog 
to see what the rest of the design team came up with for this fun challenge.
I hope you can find some time to play along and if you do, don't forget to link it up over on the Our Creative Corner Blog so we can all see it!

Thanks for stopping by today and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!

Very cool! I couldn't tell from the other pic how you did this... now I can see the small sections. Great idea, Vicki!

Wow Vicki, these are totally wonderful. I'm so glad you showed a close up because the patchwork piecing wasn't really noticeable in the smaller photos. What a really cool design and I love the embossing - it just really adds so much punch. Wonderful challenge this week - sorry I flubbed it up. It's been like that all week for me - must slow down and pay attention!

Hope you had a great weekend.
