BLOSSOM

Hi all, today I have a card to show that I made in the early hours of this morning, I am not a good sleeper at the best of times but Jess didn't want to settle so I decided to get up and make a card.
I have used one of my Morehead stamps that I have had for a few years but only used a couple of times, like a lot of my stamps I keep forgetting that I have them.
I have paper pieced her, I can remember not too far back this technique scared me but I do like to use it now and again, I am very pleased with how this one came out.  I coloured her skin and hair with copics.  The papers are Back to Basics I added a few flower gems.
I know that this is a simple card but it is one of those ones that I am extra pleased with and just keep looking at it, I think maybe it is her rosy chubby cheeks, lol.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
I want to thank everyone who left me comments on my previous card you will never know how much they mean to me, so once again thank you.
