Paper Piecing

Good Afternoon Peeps,

This week at Allsorts the challenge is Paper Piecing and as I enjoy paper piecing I decided I would make a card for this challenge.  It seems ages since I just made a card for fun and not as a DT card.

I used one of my Magnolia stamps - "Sneaky Tilda" coloured with Copics and paper pieced her dress and hair ribbon with some paper by Kaisercraft.  The background papers were by My Minds Eye and Santoro, the sentiment was courtesy of "Desert Diva", flowers from Wild Orchid, ribbon and pearls from my stash.

Alphabet Challenge - X marks the spot (or dots)
Brown Sugar Challenge - Pink and Pearls
