A spoon full of Sugar Challenge 34

H i everyone and here's my card for A spoon full of sugar challenge 34 which is paper piecing and on which I was absolutely delighted to be asked by the lovely Joanne to be a guest designer this week. I hope you can enter this great challenge and have a look at all the wonderful creations from the DT. I've chosen an Elzybells image, stamped it on white card and then again on SEI paper and paper pieced the baby blanket onto the white card. The image is marker coloured and cut out with a nestabilities circle. I added glitter jewels to the moon, matted on a nestie cut scalloped circle in peach Bazzil card and then added the tiny half pearls to the scallops. The other layers are more of the SEI double sided paper and peach Bazzil. I folded back the bottom right corner of the SEI, stamped the Elzybells sentiment and added a button and bow. The image panel is mounted on dimension tape over a strip of the peach card embossed with a swiss dots cuttlebug folder and everything is layered on a white card blank. TFL.

Materials:
Stamps: Elzybells - wavy little one - baby moon, Versafine Black Onyx for stamping
Colouring: Promarkers
Paper: SEI, Peach Bazzil card
Embellishment: Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels, tiny half pearls, white button, pink ribbon bow, cuttlebug embossing folder - swiss dots

Back soon,
Chris
