YNS Challenge - Paper Piecing

Gosh, I can hardly believe that it's already been 2 weeks since the last Your Next Stamp challenge.
This week's challenge is one of my favorites...
~ Paper Piecing ~

My favorite thing to paper piece is clothing, it's like getting to play with paper-dolls again.  Originally I was only going to do Rainy Day Fhiona's umbrella but decided to go all out and make her match from head to toe.  The Cosmo Cricket, Togetherness paper suited this sweet image perfectly!  Having no red or aqua pearls, I colored white one's with my Copic R46 & BG15 don't you just LOVE being able to do that?!?!

I hope you will be able to find the time to join us at Your Next Stamp... remember our challenges run for 2 weeks so it gives you plenty of time to play along.

I'll be back later today with my 7 Kids College Fund sample ~ hope you will be able to drop by again to see!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Such a whimsical and cute card. Lovely image and coloring. Love your papers and layout too.

Paula said...

Love the way the umbrella sits outside the panel & the paper piecing is gorgeous. Love your colouuing of her hair & the aqua accenting is masterful. I really related to your mentioning of the copics warming your heart - your positioning of the image panel between those two butterflies in the pattern makes me go all "squishy" - don't tell R I used such a word.
Much love
Paula (PEP)
