And now for something a little bit different for me

Good morning Everyone, I hope you are all warm, dry and well, and if you are not then here's a few {{{{{HUGS}}}}}
Much as I love playing with my photographs, I thought I would give you a little rest from them. It's a long time since I used this technique and I really enjoyed doing it so much I have a couple more in the pipeline.
Say hello to Sunbonnet Sue :o)


I folded and cut white linen card to 6x6.
I used an applique pattern for the image and used scraps of paper from stash for her. I covered her shoe with glossy accents to make them look like red patent. I punched the flower with Woodware form another paper scrap. The Nestie cut mats are Papermania textured card (can you tell that I love this card LOL). Added a scrap of ribbon and three little liquid pearl dots to finish :o)

I did a double-take when I spotted this pretty paper pieced card - it's so not your usual style :) It's a great idea for using up scraps of paper and card. Papermania textured card is a favourite with me - great colours. Elizabeth xx
