The Sugar Bowl and a missed challenge

The kids are off school today and Monday which means I don't have to do the school runs so more time to craft :) So I didn't waste any time getting started. Over at the Sugar Bowl there is a sketch by Gayle and the "please include" option this week is paper piecing.
So here's what I came up with.

I am really enjoying doing the distressed/vintage kind of style just now and these K&co papers work perfectly with it so I just had to use some more of them:)
I used the same papers to piece the girls clothes, teddy's bib and the book used the same but I coloured over her top, the little heart on the teddys bib and the book with a red Copic because you couldn't see the heart on teddy so I coloured it red but it looked out of place so I had to colour some more lol. The rest of the image is coloured with Copics.
All the flowers are Primas and the pearls adn ribbon are from my stash.
I quite like this card. What do you think?

Now about this missed challenge.
I just went to check out the new challenge over at Just Magnolia and realised that I hadn't posted my card for last weeks sketch yet...duh! So I thought I may as well show it anyway.

Sorry another rubbish photo! Anyway I used a Tilda image that I was sent by a friend and a log from Magnolia too. Tilda is coloured with my usual Copics and the papers are Bo bunny.
I used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch (which you can hardly see here because of my rubbish scan).
So that's the card I made on Tuesday and just got round to posting today! Never mind, there is a new challenge today so maybe I will post that one on time lol.

I'm off to do some more crafting for DT work then I will be by to visit you all later this evening.

Hi Lora do you know I have just this minute posted my card on the Sugar Bowl and noticed your name was just before me but the one thing I didn't know was that we should do paper piecing which I hate but you have done the most fabulous card I love it to bits and the 'missed' challenge one as well.
