Totally Papercrafts DT - Paper piecing

Morning Folks!! Another week gone, I know I say this every week but time just flies by too quickly, where does it go? Anyway, onto today's card which is for Totally Papercrafts and this week the lovely Caroline has chosen the theme of paper piecing. Must be honest and say it's not my favourite, I just luv colouring in too much but I did enjoy the change. For my card I decided to go with one of the Simply Sassy Girls called Bad Hare Day, isn't she just devine? My dps are all Magnolia and I've again distressed the edges, just luving the finished result that distressing gives.
I have coloured her in with Copics and decided to paper piece her top and hair band. The sentiment I've had for yonks and am thinking it's from cuddly buddly. The swirl is again a doohickey die. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the pearl sprays are from Hobbycraft. The leaves are from an MS punch. I will be entering this card into the Sugar Nellie facebook challenge as they are wanting to see paper piecing this week too. Will also be entering my card into the Fussy and Fancy challenge who are wanting to see embossing and/or paper piecing too. Also Stamp Something have a theme of something with flowers so I'll enter there too.
Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to hop on over to the Totally Papercrafts Blog and see what my teamies have created this week. Hope you have a great weekend. Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
