A real princess

Good morning and happy weekend, a nice long one here in the UK as it's a bank holiday on Monday, we've been forecast good weather too...we'll see! I have the granddaughters this weekend...they want a barbecue, so that's probably put paid to any hope of good weather in the vicinity of the SE! Glorious sunshine, cloudless skies...I mention the barbecue word and the heaven's open!!!
Anyways, back to the card...our new challenge at Sweet Stampin' this week is 'paper piecing'. I succumbed to temptation a few weeks ago and bought a job lot of stamps from ebay...a real bargain as most of them were unused, this sweet little Saturated Canary girl was amongst them. I thought at the time that it would be a perfect stamp to paper piece. I pieced the mattresses, cushion and part of her dress  using some treasured old LOTV papers. The rest is coloured with copics. I really enjoyed this project.
Thanks for stopping by today, please hop over here to see my teamies fabulous paper-pieced projects, then why not have a go yourself, just remember to stamp something, somewhere on your creation.
Have a fabulous weekend and may the sun shine on you!
