A 1st for me...

Do you enjoy card challenges? 
I know I do and not too long ago I found the company Lawn Fawn. They produce adorable stamp sets that are versatile and often accompanied by "punny" sayings. It wasn't long after purchasing my 1st set that I found a site called Lawnscaping Challenge dedicated to bimonthly challenges using Lawn Fawn stamps. It's good fun; you should definitely check it out.  
For the Challenge #20 Paper Piecing was the name of the game.  If you can believe it I have never used paper piecing on a stamping project. Hence the title of today's post "a 1st for me". After waking this morning in the wee hours I finally gave up the battle on trying to get back to sleep at 3am and crept into my craft room to have a little fun.  The card below is final product.
