Lucy's Flower

Good Evening,

What a wet day it's been. My washing was hung out to dry but got a lot wetter. Oh well!!!
Hope everyone that went to Ally Pally had a good spend, lots of goodies to play with!

My card today has been made following the sketch & theme (paper piecing) over @ Willow Sketchie. I do like working from a sketch.

The image I have used is Lucy's Flower from The Digi Garden.
Her skin, hair & socks have been coloured with promarkers & chalk. The dress & headband have been paper pieced with the orange polka dot paper used as a backing paper which I shrunk down to give a smaller print. I then picked the colour from the dotty paper to colour a piece of paper that I then used to paper piece the shoes & flower.
The backing papers are a free download from The Shabby Princess which have been edged with a spellbinder die. Seam binding ribbon in ivory has been used across the card with a bow that has a brad in the knot. I have used a pearl in the centre of the flower & viva pearls around the image.
