I made this card a while ago and it wasn't until I was tidying up my picture files that I found it. Paper piecing isn't something I do very often as I seem to stick with my promarkers but when I used this small flower print for this WOJ images dress I thought it worked quite well. I also had a go at making a flower embellishment with the smame paper and used the same  paper again as backing wow I must have been in a co-ordinating frame of mind. I even managed the backing card to blend in too.

When I sawwthere were a few paper piecing challenges atround I thought I could put this card to good use as I just don't seem to have had time to do much crafting of late, and over half term with all the appointments I have with my son, trying to fit them all in the holidays so he doesn't miss school we have a full week.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Alphabet challenge-P for paper piecing
WOJ-paper piecing
I love Promarkers-paper piecing
Bunny Zoes-spring flowers
Simon says-make your own embellishments

Another card I found that I haven't posted is using this cute stamp from sugar nellie country cousins range. I just think it is so cute. I used some textured gold paper and some checked paper , not sure of the makes. The other paper with the barometer on it I think is a K and co paper. I used promarkers to  colour the image and repeat stamped the image so I could 3D it in places. The flower I think is a prima flower and the centre is a ribbon flower I made. The leaves are rose leaves from my stash. I made this as a birthday card for a friend .

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Forgotten scraps-spring or flowers
Digi doodles shops best-anything goes
Charisma-spring has sprung
fun at fairy knoll-birthday or thankyou
Totally gorjuss-check it out
Allsorts-inspired by nature
