Fab'n'Funky Challenge #213

Good day everyone,

I hope your week is going well.   
 I've a very busy one as I'm car pooling our granddaughters while their Mom is away.  Our SIL will join our daughter in San Francisco later this week so we will have the girls for a few day which is always a treat.  They really are so much fun to have around.

On to today's post which is for the new challenge beginning today at

The theme chosen by our lovely team mate Pat is Paper Piecing.

We have the wonderful Sassy Studios as our sponsor. They kindly gave us our pick of digi's for this challenge.
My choice was Sassy Showgirl.   Coloured with Copics and  I paper pieced her bodysuit in polka dot paper adding a little shading with W3.

One of my favourite colour combos right now is taupe and grey.
Oh I still like my black & white, pinks and peach but I find this a nice change.
I ordered the new SB feather die but unfortunately it did not come in time for this card
so I used the real feathers from my stash. 
The tag is from Magnolia, one of the most versatile dies I own I think.
Bling was from the Dollar Store
Organza flower and jewel from Prima
I coloured her shoes & earrings with a GellyRoll Metallic pen.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Aurora Wings Challenge Blog - Monochromatic
Fan-Tastic Tuesday #32 - Anything Goes
Scrap-Creations #22: Anything Goes
Tuesday Throwdown Challenge #192 - Lots of Sparkle

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
