CAS Paper Piecing

I have not really done much paper piecing before so I took a look at 
this very helpful Written tutorial by Loll Thompson

This is my card
I stamped the Latte Cup from Stamplorations onto the linen card,
that had been die cut with a stitched rectangle.
I also stamped it onto some polka dot paper, that I had in my stash 
and paper pieced the cup.
The band around the middle is corrugated card and the rim of the cup 
has an extra layer around it to give extra texture and dimension.
The sentiment and coffee beans come from the same stamp set.
I can see myself getting into Paper Piecing, as I had fun making the card.

I am entering the card into the following challenges.....
