Just Magnolia week 9 - paper piecing

Hi ladies, well after a lovely lunch out yesterday I have loads of catching up to do ! The first challenge card I decided to do was the one for the Just Magnolia challenge, this week we have to include paper piecing on our card, this is the first time I have tried it and am quite happy with the result, it wasn't as fiddley as I thought.

This was the first Magnolia stamp that I bought and I still think she is soooooooo sweet. I used Bazzil Swiss Dots card and some Basic Grey to stamp and paper piece Tildas apron with, I did distress the edges a bit before I stuck the apron down

I added some dried flowers for the greenery, a little funky fibre and some mulberry roses to finish it all off, also some lovely braid that I picked up at my local craft shop last week. Well, I better go and get on with the next one lol, after I have made some muffins with the children, I have been promising all morning......... and last evening, yes, definatly time to go do some baking,
