Happy Birthday Tilda for Challenge

This was great. SCS Breast Cancer Awareness challenge today was to make a birthday card using paper piecing. I've never tried this before so I kept it simple, Tilda's yellow and turquoise clothes are paper pieced but that's all. Well, I'm so glad I tried this. It is really fun, I learned something new, and I'll definitely be doing it again.
This image of Tilda just cries out "I Love You This Much!" She's a real darling and I think might be my new favorite (until the next one).
I'm still working on my Copic technique. Skin colors only on this card. IRL it looks pretty good, better than in the scan. I'm really loving my new Cryogen White card stock and am looking forward to buying lots more Copics.
