Paper Piecing

Yay I got another card finished!!

This week at I ♥ Promarkers the challenge is for paper piecing. Have only done this once before and was really unsure on an image to use. Love this digi from Charmed Cards & Crafts and thought the umberella would be ideal for paper piecing.
Have paper pieced the umberella and the girls boots with paper from Country Companions the sentiment is from country companions as well. Coloured the rest of the image with promarkers. Backing papers are from g.c.d not really sure about the flowers on this card don't think they are the right colour but anyway some are from Wild Orchid and others are from my stash. Followed a fab sketch from Friday Sketchers.

Off now to feed the kids, but will hopefully get around some blogs later and look at your lovelly creations :)

Oooh, I looked at this sketch and chickened out! :) lol.

Great image for paper-piecing, it works really well (and its quite cute too) ;) Love how you have matched the papers, and the pearls in the corner look really elegant.

Thanks also about the suggestion for WH Smith, though I dont live very near to a city, at least its not so hard to find after all. :)

Hope you have a great week at work ;)
