Sugar Nellie GDT card and Spoonful of sugar

Over at A Spoonful of Sugar this week the theme is
Paper Piecing
I have been playing around with this image for a week or so now and finally decided to get it finished for this challenge. I used a lot more colours than I normally do, also a lot brighter and I think that was why I couldn't finish it earlier, just wasn't satisfied. I was so out of my comfort zone on this card!
The very sweet image is, of course, a Sugar Nellie stamp called
'Lola's tea party' designed by Rachelle Anne Miller
although I already owned the stamp it came in my Guest DT package. I will be giving away the brand new stamp (even I don't need 2 the same!) as candy next week on the Cute Card Thursday challenge, make sure you tune in, we have a fab new challenge starting tomorrow morning!

I used my paper piecing to add a 3 d effect and also cut out bits of the patterned paper to add extra embellishments.
Supplies:
DP~ Papertrunk Jellybean lemon lime and berry blue
Stamps ~ Sugar Nellie 'Lola's tea party', See D's balloons stamp
Embellishments ~ Rik rak, rub on from stash, heart charm and link from Sugar Nellie
