Paper Piecing Bargello Style

My June Stampin' Success magazine from Stampin' Up! had a fun idea. Why not use the Bargello needlepoint style for paper crafting? On this card, I used my Neighborhood DSP from the SAB catalog, cut 3" x 1/4" strips plus one 3" x 1/2" strip to make this interesting background paper. I really like it! I wish it wasn't quite so sunny outside when I took the picture so that you could see the DSP better. The baby carriage image is from Fun & Fast Notes and the baby is from All in the Family. There are large polka dots on the Pretty in Pink background piece, made with the texture plate. I think this will make a great baby card for a couple of customers/friends who just had baby girls.
Want to see this in person? Give me a buzz or drop me a line. I'd love to get together with you!
Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station.
