Paper Pieced Birthday Card

Good morning everyone, hope you've all had a fab weekend in the was so hot here but great to spend some time relaxing in the garden even if it was under the gazebo!  Gotta love a hammock in this weather!

I'm sharing a card today that was made for Sophie's friend Olivia for her 13th birthday. Liv not only loves horses but she also enjoys photography and when I came across this image recently I knew it would be perfect for her. I opted for a bit of paper piecing on her top and trousers to co-ordinate with my design papers.

Normally I'd be sharing a card with you for Cupcake today but we are running fortnightly challenges now until the beginning of September, so that everyone gets to enjoy the holidays. The current challenge Anything But Square ends on Sunday 14th July 2013 and a new challenge will be announced on 15th which will run for 2 weeks!
