Sugar Bowl # 76, Truly Scrumptious # 72 and Sugar Nellie (Facebook)

Loved the colour combination on the Sugar Nellie challenge on Facebook this week, so thought I would combine it with The Sugar Bowl Challenge too. 

This was a very quick card and I am really pleased as I eventually tried paper piecing.  Took me long enough to try it and now I can't wait to try it again.  I paper pieced the dress but made a mistake, I cut off the little bits at the tights by mistake.  I coloured it hoping you wouldn't notice but it is slightly lighter and my eldest daughter suggested it could act like a petticoat. A suggestion from a daughter who doesn't like crafting.  Maybe I am winning her over.

I am entering my card into three challenges :-

Sugar Bowl # 76 - Follow Sketch with optional theme of paper piecing
Truly Scrumptious # 72 - Something Forgotten (Image) - (second entry)
Sugar Nellie - Facebook - Orange and Green





I ran out of pearls for the inside but I think it works ol.

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Patterned Paper - Echo Park
Image - Sugar Nellie
Colour with Distress Inks
Woodware Flower Punch
Pearls and Ribbon - Mei Flower

Internet still playing up, just takes a lot longer to access everything.  More frustrating than anything.

Thanks for popping by, your comments are always appreciated.
