Happy Mimosa


I love this image by Bildmalarna called "Happy Mimosa", it's just too adorable.  I got mine from Jenny's store "Paper Jewels".  Thanks to the current Paper Sundaes Challenge I'm now addicted to paper piecing :)  Mimosa's dress is paper pieced.  I used all Stampin Up design paper for this card and coloured Mimosa with copics and used my pink spica glitter pen to colour in her headband, bows and slippers.  I also punched some flowers using another SU punch and added some dew drops and ribbon for added embellishment.  I will be entering my card in the current Roses on Paper Challenge #34 which is to use punches on your card.  Since I used the flower punch both on the front and inside my card I'm hoping I'll qualify.  I left the inside blank so I can add a handwritten message later.

It's my first time ever playing in one of their challenges but definitely not the last since I just purchased more Bildmalarna's and have some Belle's & Whistle stamps on the way :)  Wish me luck!
