Sarah Kay in Polka Dots

I had so much fun making my card for today because it's a technique that I hardly ever use and I'd forgotten how much I like paper piecing. This little Sarah Kay looks so sweet in her polka dot outfit and the card turned out prettier that I had anticipated.

This is my One Stop Craft Challenge card where Suzi has picked the theme of Paper Piecing for us this week.

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

Friday Sketchers - the wonderful sketch

Incy Wincy Challenge - Stitching (hand stitching this time)

Items Used:

Image: Sarah Kay
Papers: DCWV The Linen Closet
Big rose: Magnolia tulle rose
Small roses: Hobbycraft
Distress inks: Old Paper, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Weathered Wood, Faded Denim, Walnut stain
Everything else from my stash.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
