Been doing a little bit of paper piecing....

Hi all......hope you're enjoying your weekend so far! Had intended to get up early....get the housework done this morning and then spend the afternoon crafting - didnt work out quite that way, slept in till nearly 10am and then the hubby decides that he fancies a mooch around The Range for baking tins (he's been watching the "bake-off" on the telly this week and now think he is Paul Hollywood - I should be so  lucky!!!!)  So housework didnt get a look in....we poodled out and came back a wee while later with no baking tins but a couple of packs of white square cards (just to top up!)
The downside is that so far i've only had time to work on this card. Printed, coloured and "dressed" this image a couple of days ago when I spotted that Simon says stamps challenge this week is Paper Piecing - I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I love doing this, especially when it comes to making little dresses for my girlies!
What I've used:
Image from The Digi Garden, coloured with Promarkers
Paper is from 7Gypsies
Cheery Lynn border die
birthday wording is a section of a cuttlebug folder
pearls from Meiflower
ribbon from stash
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
off now to investigate a rather yummy, bready smell wafting up from the kitchen....catch you all later xx
