CAS-ual Fridays 65...Square Card

The cards in the CAS-ual Fridays gallery each and every week continue to blow me away!!  The creativity of the work makes it so difficult to choose a are amazing artists!!!  Congrats to the winner and runner ups of last week's Sky challenge!!...and thank to all you who play along each week...keep it coming!!  This week the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to make a clean and simple card that is square!...
This week the sponsor of this challenge is Stampotique Originals
Stampotique generously gave all the Girl Fridays an image and a sentiment stamp to create with this week...check out the CAS-ual Fridays blog and Facebook to see some of their wonderful stamps that were  used on the inspiration cards this week!!  The winner of this week's challenge will win a $30 shopping spree to shop Stampotique so come join the fun!!!  
I absolutely fell in love with this little girl and perfect sentiment, and used paper piecing to make my card...
I used Papertrey Ink polka dotted design paper for her  top, Gina K Designs for her pants, Michael's light pink vellum for her face and hands, and cajun craze run through with PTI Linen/canvas impression plate for the flower pot.  Her hat is soft suede stamped with Hero Arts Envelope Pattern in soft suede, her shoes were stamped on white paper...thought sneakers/tennis shoes?!...  the flower are stamped with scrap paper dotted with enamel accents.  Here's a closeup...
I really love the way paper piecing can give an image something that simply coloring can't...texture and pattern...and for ME, personally...although some may not agree, it's a whole lot easier  than coloring:)!!  Hope you will join in the fun this's a great week to be a!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
