Geisha Girl Birthday card (LaLa Land image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I hope you've all been well, it's been over a week since I posted on my blog I think and that has to be a record haha! I have so many new cards to show so I hope you'll stay tuned to see them all over the next couple of days. 

I paper pieced this little sweetie's outfit and coloured the rest in with my Copics. I hope you like it, I think the paper piecing turned out really well. The stamp is a rubber one from LaLa Land stamps.
