oval STAX 2 Die-namics. I can't remember the last time I paper pierced around an image. I did it free hand, just using the embossed edge as a guide and eyeballing the spacing. The card layout is Card Patterns Sketch 160.
Wisteria felt was a perfect match for these papers so I used it to create the Large Royal Rose and added a few twine loops behind it. I can't get enough of my fishtail flags STAX Die-namics dies so I used them to cut out the chevron paper and layered it onto Hot Fudge card stock. The base layers are Fossil and Grape Jelly card stocks.
Next up is the equally adorable Pure Innocence Giraffe Girl. I also wanted to paper piece her top, but it's a little trickier to do so I took photos along the way, which I'll share as you scroll down this post.

My Time Made Easy sketch 56, and I used the chevron stripes Die-namics to cut out the three horizontal strips. Then I used the narrow banner from the first place award ribbon Die-namics for the sentiment, which is from the exclusive Sweet Safari Sentiments Mini set.

Here's how I paper pieced her shirt:
First I stamped the image two times onto cream card stock and once onto the polka dot patterned paper (from the My Mind's Eye Mabel 6x6 pad). I coloured the parts of the image that I wasn't going to paper piece, including her upper arms (I gave the lower parts of her arms one coat of colour before I realized they'd be covered.
Next I glued on the polka dot shirt layer, which includes the giraffe and her hands, so she looks a little funny at this point.
Then I glued the last layer, the giraffe and the lower parts of her arms (which I coloured with copic markers), and now she looks much better!
Here's a side view to try and show you the three layers of paper piecing.
Here are the Die-namics I used:
