Gorjuss Pink Bumble Bee!!

Hi everyone hope you are all well. Now did you notice something different with my photo?? Thanks to Tracy Vinson over at the Crafters Digital Art Centre I have now managed to put a water mark on my photos.
I had to use Picassa - there is a link over at CDAC to get a free download.
Anyhow, on to my card. I decided to get my Bumble Bee Sugar Nellie stamp out again (I won this in one of Melly's candies - thanks hun). I have paperpieced her again, but I think she really suits this method. I have made this card for a work colleague - hope she likes pink!!!

Here is a close up.............

and of course having used a Sugar Nellie stamp I had to join in the challenge at The Sugar Bowl which is to choose a sketch and do what you like. So I chose the sketch from Challenge # 21 shown below....

and now you can combine with other challenges - right up my street!! Let me know what you think.

Stunning card, really beautiful.
You are so right, I think the dress is perfect for paper piecing. Lovely papers too, I'm sure the recipient will adore this.
