Stamp Fairy Challenge #6 plus Challenge Card

Hi all today we have a new challenge for you to try at The Stamp Fairy this week the theme is
Paper Piecing
Here is my DT Card
I used to shy away from paper piecing but have tried it several times now and I love it, I have paper pieced the dress and bow of this gorgeous Stamp Fairy image, then coloured her hair and skin with Copics the balloon I glittered with Fools Gold Glitter.
The papers are Bearlymine, I punched out some retro flowers using the same papers and added gems for their centres.  I also punched out a heart and added a flower, I then adhered some ribbon.
All images from the Stamp Fairy are available HERE
I am also entering this card into the following challenge:

I hope you will try your hand at a bit of Paper Piecing and come join us this week at The Stamp Fairy if you would like to use one of our images there is a freebie selection available at Stamp Fairy.
My next card is also using a Stamp Fairy Image I have made this for the challenge at
I have used Basic Grey papers the image I coloured with Copics then cut out and mounted onto two embossed circles, I added a red embossed heart, the four circles I cut out using one of my Die Cuts then mounted some flowers, I also added some red pearls, sentiment and ribbon, which I have pleated on one side (left hand side)
I hope you have enjoyed viewing my work
