Embellish Challenge

The Embellish Challenge is a color and piecing challenge.  Here is the beautiful picture:
This week's sponsor is My Favorites Things, that inspired me to pull out my Pure Innocence image from My Favorite Things.



The pants, shirt and chalkboard are all pieced using various papers. I decided to create a 5 1/2" x 51/2" card with a diagonal fold on the front.

The sentiment on the chalkboard is from Memory Box and purchased especially for my middle daughter as she is really smart and I thought it would be cute to get the sentiment for when she does well on her grades. 

Thanks for stopping by!
