Paper Piecing

My card today is for two challenges

First is Mojo Monday with this sketch,

and then Make My Monday want to see some


This is my card

I started by stamping the little girl in Archival ink on white card, yellow striped and flowered DSP's. The hat and dress were then cut out and placed over the image on the white card. The dress ribbon and girls arms were coloured with SU Markers and an Aqua Painter.
The whole thing was then cut with a Nestie. Using the same DSP's I stamped the flowers and butterfly and cut/punched them out and layered them with the green stamped leaves. A ribbon and sentiment were added to finish.

Supplies :
Card = Real Red, Whisper White, and white base FMS
Stamps = Summer by the Sea, Fabulous Florets, Tea Shoppe, and Papillon Potpourri
Inks = Black Archival, Blushing Bride, Real Red, Gumball Green, Certainly Celery, and Crushed Curry
Tools = Big Shot, Nestabilities, Aqua Painter, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and Elegant Butterfly Punch
Extras = 3D Pads and Ribbon

I'm in hospital again tomorrow, so I may be AWOL for a few days, but I'll be back asap. Have a great week
