Paper piecing

Not often that there are cute cards on my blog as it's not my kind of stuff ,however this Polkadoodles stamp sort of fell into my shopping basket at the Harrogate show, think I just fell for her big boots!
Fashionable stamping challenge this week is Paper Piecing which is something I like doing and I thought this stamp just asked to be paper pieced. The background paper was free with a magazine and the flowers were also stamped on some of the free papers and cut out,stalks and leaves free cut from the same papers. The flower stamp is also a freebie from another magazine. I didn't put a sentiment on but this will probably be a birthday card for one of the great grand daughters.
