Crafty Ann's Challenge #69 - Paper piecing

It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog.  This time we are being challenged to "paper piecing".
For my card I used Crafty Ann's digital image of roses with a large bow.  I printed the image out once on some white card.  I then printed it again onto some of Crafty Ann's red Funky Collection Backing Paper (no 3) and some blue Polished Stone Backing Paper and cut out the flowers and bow.  The leaves have been coloured with promarkers.  I used the same Funky backing paper as a mount along with a green Polished Stone backing paper.  On the Funky backing paper I digitally added some of the little wired flowers from the Cream Dream Digital Scrapbook Kit.  The centres of the flowers have some acrylic paint added to the centres and the card has been finished off with a matching insert and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Just Some Lines - Keep it CAS
One Stitch at a Time - Use a digi
Inspire me Friday - Anything goes
Allsorts - In bloom
Mema's Crafts - Anything goes
LEJ Designs - Fabulous flowers
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes and option of highlighting image by 3D or glitter or Glossy Accents
My Mum's Craft Shop - Photo inspiration
DYSU - Red
