Sketch saturday, Simon says stamp and stampchallenges

Phew, this card took all day long and I'm tiiiired... I'm having so much fun crafting again. I can't believe how much I missed it! And even though I'm doing it soooo slowly I'm glad I can do it at all. Makes you think that you might not be able to do it tomorrow. Carpe Diem people, lol. I thought I'd have time to sew after I was done with this, but it's already 1am so I think I will have to put it up for tomorrow. AGAIN

I made the card mainly for Simon says stamp challenge that had "paperpiecing" this week. As you might see I used the yellow paper for her bathingsuit and hat. I just stamped on the paper at random, but managed to get the pink flower exactly in the middle. How great is that. The green paper with yellow dots I used for the purse and blanket. I also coloured some of the pieces with my promarkers to add depth, like the bag for instance. I used my brand new nesties that I actually got in the mail today. Yey! I embossed the square too, but cut that part away so I could add the white bling cardstock and have an edge. Does that make sense? I'm getting sleepy :)

I followed this great sketch from sketch saturday and a colourcombo of green/yellow/pink from the stamp challenges blog.

Hope you like it. I'm actually very proud of this one. I even have a ribbon and I hate working with ribbons :D

The quote says: "He who returns from a journey is not the same as he who left." Not sure when to use this card, but I'm trying to think outside of the box and be creative.
