Paper Piecing - I love it

Hello again my dears,  I'm back with my second post of the day but this isn't a DT card, I'm going to a huge family celebration tomorrow eve, our Great Niece is getting engaged and this is the wee card I've made for her.  My dear hubbies family is quite a large one, 4 brothers n sister, between the five we have 21 Nieces and Nephews and they have given us 34 great Nieces and Nephews and one Great Great Niece, when we include Scott's family it's going to be some Party!!!  I'm really looking forward to it.

I didn't want to make the card too girly after all it's for both of them so I chose this wonderful quirky image of Ben & Nora from Whiff of Joy, coloured the skin tones with pro markers and paper pieced his suit and hat and Nora's dress.  I've used the same papers to punch a couple of borders with my new MS Garden Gate large border punch and the flower is made using a Marianne Die with the same paper.  I think it's lovely and I'm sure they will love it.

I am entering it into the following challenges:

Whiff of Joy:  Paper piecing is the theme for this fortnight

I love Promarkers:  Are also looking for paper piecing but of course you must use your pro markers too.

Stamp Something:  This week are looking for something Funky. I think the image is funky

Simon Says Stamps:  Would like to see you make your own embellishments.  My flower is hand made

Fab n Funky: Would also like you to make your own embellishments.

Thank you for popping in to visit, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
