Polka Doodles Paper Piecing Challenge

Please join us for this week's challenge at Polka Doodles which has a great theme of Paper Piecing and has been set by Claire.
My card is a mix of several CDs and I decided to go for a bright Spring colour theme (I live in hope!!!).
Most of the card elements, including the pretty green paper, the cute image, the cut out flowers and grass and the text, came from the Back to Nature CD and the pink polka dot paper from the latest Love & Cherish CD. You'll find these at the Polka Doodles online shop.
The flowery paper I made myself using my Millefiori stamping technique with pink, yellow and green inks and 2 of the tiny flowers from the gorgeous Polka Doodles Daisy Doodles stamp set. I also had to be a little creative with the scalloped green oval as I don't yet have my wished for Nestabilities set. I cut mine with small scallop scissors.
I printed the image on the green paper and the polka dot paper and cut various pieces out. The rest of the image I coloured with my Promarkers.
