Annie...again!

I've combined challenges again on this card: the colour combination of Orange, Yellow and Green of the Colour Create Challenge; the 'Paper Piecing' technique challenge from Stamping Chic; and the Secret Crafter Challenge of 'Masking'. All of the papers are by BasicGrey, from the 'Boxer' and 'Cupcake' pads. My image is a Sugar Nellie stamp, 'Blossom' by Leanne Ellis, and I masked off the two flowers from either side of Annie before stamping (so that it would fit in the oval). I then stamped her gain on to the 'Boxer' paper, and paper pieced her skirt. The flowers were stamped using two of the stamps from the 'Doodles' set from the Clare Curd Signature Range by Papermania, on to scraps of the other BG papers I used, then cut out. The orange panel was embossed using the Cuttlebug 'Textile' folder, the sentiment stamp is by Whiff of Joy, and the lace raffia is from Hobbycraft.


This was the card I sent to my partner for the March friendship swap on the Docrafts forum, where the extra challenge was to use 3D flowers on our cards, so I think I've got that one covered too!
