I used the Orange spotted paper for the main background and to paper piece Faith's coat and hat, Matted Faith onto the swirl paper. Stamped her hat 3 more times onto orange spotted paper. Used weaved paper for layering and fancy cut scissors for paper ribbon. Stamped border is from the Butterfly set. Blooms and bling to finish. :)
