Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - with a twist

It's the last challenge of the month of January over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday so we can choose any of the previous sketches and the twist this month is to use paper piecing. I made one card and forgot about the paper piecing so then had to make another.

So here is the sketch I chose

and here is my card

I was looking through my stamps for an image suitable for the paper piecing and came across Daisy, a Sugar Nellie image by the artist Elisabeth Bell. I coloured her in with copics and paper pieced her clothes using Basic Grey Oh Baby Girl papers, I would imagine they are long retired by now. I also used the papers on the main card matted onto Bazzill card. The flowers are Prima and the brads and pearls are from the Hobby House.

I think from the colours I have used I must be subconsciously hoping for Spring, although the snowdrops are out in  the garden.

Thank you for visiting and for any comments you are kind enough to leave
