Paper Piecing at Ladybug Crafts Ink

I am all confused with having yesterday off as a Bank Holiday, I have been convinced today was Monday and then realsied that I was late posting my card for Ladybug Crafts Ink!!!

Well without further ado here we go with another challenge and this one was chosen by the lovely Pam and we want to see Paper Piecing
We are back to the usual fortnightly challenges now that the Summer is over....I know....what summer!!!!

So mine was a very quick and simple card using Cupcake Cutie Cherry On Top this was one of the very first image that I purchased from LCI and I think is still one of my favourites.

I have paper pieced the cupcake wrapper and the topping along with her top.
She is coloured with pencils and I have added Glossy Accents to the cherry and Liquid Pearls to the frosting.
The sentiment is also from LCI and the flowers are die cut.

Short and sweet from me today.
Have a lovely evening.
