celebrate the everyday

I'm totally behind on myself I have had this card made for the last 3 days and just didn't get time to post it. I wanted to use to take part in a couple of challenges and am still going to even though they have passed.
I followed the sketch on Sketch-saturday which was alot of fun.
The challenge on spoon-full-of-sugar was paper piecing. The trousers and the top are paper pieced and then coloured abit to give depth.
The challenge on the Whiff-of-joy blog is to use purple and greens. I cheated alittle and used my distressing inks to make papers the colour that I needed.

The inside of the card is stamped with see d's stamp and then chalked so it doesn't look stark.
Materials used.
Whiff of Joy stamp and sentiment
Inside See d's Bella flora
Brenda walton paper
Bo bunny paper
k &co paper
Most of the papers have been coloured with distress inks
Prima flower
