Paper piecing for Squigglefly

I hope you all have had a great weekend despite the extreme weather which seems to be happening in many different parts of the world at the moment, here in the UK we have been deluged with rain for what seems like weeks now but I didn't let the wet weather stop me enjoying this weekend. We celebrated our daughter's birthday at a Mexican restuarant on Friday night and I spent yesterday at a craft fair where several of my monkeys went to new homes and I met some lovely stallholders & crafters - great fun!

I was delighted recently to have been invited to join the design team at Squigglefly and today I have my first dt project to share! The challenge this week is paper piecing and I was given this fabulous image Pretty Bird to work with, it it part of Saturday's new release and is by Diana Garrison. 
I have used backing papers by K&Co and I coloured the rest of the image with Promarkers, added a little lace and a sentiment which was die cut with a label die from Whimsy Stamps.

I'm entering this for the following challenges:
Sweet Stampin Paper piecing
Crafty Ann's - Paper piecing
Inspire Me Fridays - Always anything goes
Our Craft Lounge - Die cuts
Card and Scrap - Wings
