Meet Sunbonnet Sue

I have loved her for many years. My daughter makes quilts and about 15 years ago she made one with her on it and I fell in love, but being an applique image I never thought about adapting her for cardmaking. I'm a bit slow on the uptake sometimes LOL.
I got downloaded the image from http://www.quilterscache.com/ and then made templates of all the little bits that make her into the image you see here. The striped and spotty DPs are MME, the others are from stash. She is made up in layers using 1mm foam pads. Of course I had to incorporate my Nesties :o)
