Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Paper Piecing

Our challenge this fortnight at Oldie but a Goodie is:

'Paper Piecing'

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

Prize - 5 images of the winner's choice from Squidgi Digi!

I've used a High Hopes stamp on my card called 'Cherry Chip Chimp', and paper pieced his cupcake. The papers I've used (and I've managed to use 7 different patterns on this card!) are all from the 'Offbeat' pad by BasicGrey. I doodled borders using a black gel pen, and cut the star using Nesties. The three little brads are also by BasicGrey.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges!
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to Oldie but a Goodie.
