Paper Piecing Challenge 35

For this challenge I used downloaded a set of papers called Raspberry Jam from Raspberry Road, who have some lovely papers to buy and lots of freebies. I printed the papers out onto pearlescent papers which gives a very delicate glimmer, but you cant really see it on the photo, sorry.
The image is from the Whiff of Joy Summer Kit.
I used the paper piecing technique for her clothes and hair band. I coloured her skin and hair with copics.
I made the flower from the left over DP's, I used a papermania brad to hold it together and sprayed with red Glimmer Mist.
The charm is one that came on braid from a little Indian shop that is full of goodies.
It is one of those places that I love to go in because you just dont know what you wil find.
Leaves were ones I punched and just to go a little bit OTT I added some gems.
For the inside I used a mixture of Raspberry Jam and Designer Extreme Inserts from the talented Donna at Bearly Mine Designs.
I have also entered this card in the Creative Inspirations Challenge which also happens to be Paper Piecing.
