It is my sister-in-law's birthday on 28 December so I always try to make her a non-Christmas colour card. I did try using a Tellen's Place image but couldn't work out how to do it with a white outline so had to abort for the time being until I feel up to playing. Instead I used a new Dottie's World digital image entitled Sugar and Spice. They sell the images with a white background or transparent but I always tend to go with transparent.
I then copied the image several times in My Craft Studio and overlayed it over a purple (for the dress), pink (for the dress bodice), orange (for the dress bow) and brown (for the little girl's hair) background/colour collection and then did some faux-matting using the My Craft Studio Parchment CD to make a backing for the image. It was all printed out and then I cut out all the paper piecing bits and then mounted it up using some Summer Driggs paper and some cream paper from my stash. It was finished off with two flowers cut from Allissa Design Studio CDs, a flower from some recent blog candy and finished off with some glossy accents and a load of seed beads.
This card fits the criteria for the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday - Happy Birthday
Daring Cardmakers - NO Christmas but polka dots
Cute Card Thursday - Sew beady
Tellen's Place - Paper piecing.
