A Piece of Pretties Wednesday

Two weeks ago Joni (the super illustrator for Paper Pretties) challenged the design team to make a card with paper piecing. This was perfect for me since I had more of the great new Basic Grey paper to play with. I picked out a couple of sheets with cool blue and green tones and took the color scheme from there: Bordering Blue, Mellow Moss and a bit of Chocolate Chip accents. Hmmm... this may just become a favorite combo for me!

This card will be winging its way to Jules soon. I'm a bit behind in my mailings... again.

Quick notes: Main image was colored with markers, except for the dress which was paper pieced from Basic Grey designer paper. A blender pen was used to add a bit of Bordering Blue shadow around her feet. The necklace was highlighted with a white gel pen and the flower with a clear Spica pen. The rest is pretty straightforward but as usual if you have any questions just send me an email or leave a comment and I'll try to answer it! :)
