Paper-pieced Blooms

What a mad week - I haven't had a spare moment to craft as I have started to work from home. My dining table now is covered with files, a monitor a keyboard and a laptop - no room for crafting! Still, nothing stops us playing with our stash for long - a small table in the living room is my new crafting area (and I can watch TV while I craft!).

Today's card is a birthday card for a friend to give to her Aunt. I've used an old digi-image from Digistamp Boutique which I have paper-pieced using floral patterned papers.from Dovecraft's Floral Muse collection. They have a lovely vintage feel to them. I've embellished using some coordinating ribbon and flat-backed pearls.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
