Corrosive Challenges

Hi Folks
Hope you are all well and having a good weekend.  We have spent a lovely weekend visiting my sister and her hubby.  So I have had a nice restful weekend and loved spending some time with my two nephews.  Just waiting for roast beef dinner now yum, yum.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Corrosive Challenges.  Our sponsor for the month of March is Sassy Studio Designs who are generously offering the winner 4 digis of their choice from the store.

So onto the theme of this fortnights challenge - Give Piece a Chance.  What we are looking for is some paper piecing on your project.  Also, as St Patricks Day is coming up we have a bonus challenge to use lots of green on your project.  Anyone who does will receive an extra entry into the draw.
The design team were generously given some images to use from Sassy Studio Designs and I chose the lovely Country Donna.

The papers I used were some that I have had in my paper box for quite a while.  They were some that I received free in a magazine some time ago.  I used the same papers to paper piece the clothes on the image. I also paper pieced her hat.  The photo really does not do the card justice. The colours are so much brighter in real life.  Think I may need to invest in some decent lighting for taking photos.
You have a fortnight to submit your entries for the challenge.  Why not pop over to Corrosive Challenges and check out the rest of the fabulous work from the design team.  Looking forward to seeing your entries.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Papertake - use sketch
Whimsy Stamps - Paper piecing
Digi Doodle - Pink and green
Divas By Design - Spots and/or stripes
Creative Inspirations - Anything goes
Polka Doodles - Polkadots and/or stripes
Catch The Bug - Anything goes

Thanks for popping by and take care.

Lovely card! I really like the color combination, and that creamy flower is so pretty. I need to work on taking better photos as well, but it still looks wonderful to me!
