On my blog yesterday I told you that I would post the card that I was making for the SSIC challenge this week today. Yesterday's card was created in a hurry for an occasion that I needed a quick card for. The card below was in process and finished yesterday.
The challenge was to use something natural, I used the cork as a natural substance. This was such a fun card to make. I did a LOT of paper piecing on this sweet girl and fussy cutting galore - no wonder I did not get it done in time! The only coloring was the skin and the hair. There is a reason for that, I used some cheaper paper for this image and the Copics kind of bled - so I snipped out some clothes for her. 

Be sure to click on SSIC to see this challenge and play along.
