RCC10 - Paper piecing challenge

I LOVE to paper piece!  I have been wanting to play along with the Ribbon Carousel Challenge#10 all week and I just had a chance to do so................7 hours before the link closes!  Whew!  I just ordered a few digital stamped from Teddy Bo (so stinkin' cute and fun to color) and I thought this image from the Teddy Bea line called "Swinging on a Star" was a fun choice for paper piecing.  I typically paper piece clothing, but this time I decided to paper piece the moon!

I chose some Bo Bunny Mellow Yellow DSP  for the moon and paired it with some PTI white, harvest gold, kraft, and dark chocolate CS.  I ran the kraft label through the SU square lattice embossing folder.  I added some PTI dark chocolate twill ribbon, a PTI dark chocolate button, some espresso baker's twine, and some pearls that I colored with copics for embellishments.  I completely forgot to leave out my copics as I colored so I couldn't take a pics of the ones I used like I usually do.  Oops!

For the inside of the card, I layered the white CS over harvest gold CS and then stamped this super cute sentiment from the Verve  "To the Moon" stamp set in Momento rich cocoa ink.
