Sugar Bowl 20... Gayles Sketch and Paper Piecing

Hi all....
Theres a wonderful sketch by Gayle over at the Sugar Bowl this week.... and they would also like to see paper piecing.....
hmmmmm...... Got to say I've only ever tried paper piecing once before.... and didnt really get the results I was hoping for..... well thats an understatement actually..... it was a disaster!! lol!!

but I'm quite pleased with the results on this one, and I even got the thumbs up from hubby, who rarely shows an interest in anything craft wise!!....

heres my card....


Images ~Sugar Nellie windswept and Butterfly from the whiff of joy spring kit.

Coloured with- promarkers

Papers~ BG dasher BG figgy pudding DCWV oldworld

paper pieced areas~ DCWV oldworld

Ribbon ~ making memories

Flowers ~ woodware and paper punched centres

light doodling round the image with promarkers and accents added with rainbow glaze

Sentiment - 'just' done with rub ons, and 'because' handwritten

Thank you for looking!!!
