Fairy Tales..

I have managed to make three cards this afternoon
Paul is home so busy working in the workroom
so I have been quietly sat making cards.
trying my hardest not to talk to much
anyway I have made a Back to school card
Am sure this will come in handy once we are back in the UK
here it is
Now I can not remember were I got the image from
But at the bottom of it there is a website which says ...
I have been over and tried to find but can not
I am entering this into three Challenges so have made it to fit all three (hopefully)
the Challenges are
Catch the bug - Warm colours and Paper piecing
Allsorts - Back to School
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Anyway how its made
I printed the image onto white cardstock
then onto the orange backing paper
I then cut out the sections I wanted to use for the 
Paper piecing
they were then glued into place.
I have not coloured her at all left her black and white
As I think she looks rather nice

Then I layered card and paper and attached her on top
down the left I edge punched the same paper as I used to paper piece so it matched
then I added flowers and the sentiment
I do hope this is ok for the Challenges
thanks for stopping by xx
