JIC - Sassy Studio Designs, QKR Stampede - Paper Piecing

This week the challenge is Paper Piecing and our sponsors are Sassy Studio Designs who is giving a great prize of 4 images, QKR Stampede who I am unsure of what the prize is from them.

The Image I used is call Latte Momma by Sassy Studio Designs and is available to buy from their store. 
It was my 1st ever time at paper piecing so was a challenge for me, I decided to give myself a bit of a challenge and went for 5 layers not just 1. Below is a photo of my paper piecing the verison on the computer so that you can see the different patterns, as the photo of the card you can't see the patterns on the jeans and shoes properly. Here is the picture of the image and of my card.

The card is A5 size and I made it for my best friends birthday. I used card from Papermill to make the card blank. The green patterned paper is from Kanban and the purple papers used behind the image and 2 layers of the flower are from Forever Friends paper pack. The sentiments are from Tatty Teddy and backed onto purple card with silver edging, these are from my stash. The image is backed onto a silver from which is also from my stash. The flower is made using a Marianne flower die, I used silver and glitter paper from my stash, as-well as the Forever Friends papers I mentioned before. I then finished off the card with white pearls.The papers I used to do the paper piecing are freebie papers but I can't remember where from, if anyone knows then just let me know in the comments and I will then give credit to the artists. The image is coloured in with Promarkers, here is a list of the colours I have used: Eyes- Cyan   Lips- Berry Red
Skin- Vanilla, Ivory, Saffron, Sunkissed Pink, Rose Pink      Hair- Terracotta, Raw Sienna, Chestnut.

Hope that you liked my card, now its your turn to make something to fit the theme
