Paper Piercing tilda

Here is my newest card I made for a couple of challenges. This is my first time Paper Piecing, and I can see a lot more of this in my future. It was pretty easy, and SO much fun. I think Tilda looks so cute with her patterned dress and matching socks!!!!
I used my Graphic 45 Christmas Past paper for the patterned paper. I wanted to give this card a traditional, old skool, type feel. I love how these patterned papers are just perfect coloring and amazing patterns. I used my Nesties Labels 14 to cut out Tilda. Then I placed that on two ovals that I cut out with my cricut.
I added some roses to the corner and glimmer misted them with Candy Apple Red and Wheatfields Glimmer mist to match the design papers and color scheme. I also used my new Sew Easy for the first time on this card. I LOVE that little gadget. It was so easy, and minus a few mishaps, I think it turned out super cute. What a great added element to any card!
I used the design paper to paper piece Tildas dress and socks. I stamped the image on the design paper and cut out the dress and socks, then glued them onto the colored Tilda image. I used copics to color the rest of tilda and for the shading on Tildas dress and socks.

Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E51, E57, E59
Holly in tilda's Hair - R27, G24, G17
