April showers......

I made this for the Bugaboo Challenge Blog. Incorporate April showers to May flowers while using this fun sketch. If this doesn't say Spring, I don't know what does. The dress on this little chick has polka dots on it but because I wanted to paper piece this image - I printed it once then used white out to remove the polka dots. Then if you make a photo copy of that you can't tell (at all) that you used white out. So copy onto your patterned paper and cut away. Bugaboo images are perfect for paper piecing because they have thicker outlines for easy cutting. I also used dimentionals on the bow in her hair. Isn't she CUTE :-)

Great sentiment here. I've never used red and orange together before. I think I need to get braver and venture into different colour schemes. Thanks for joining in with the Catch The Bug Challenge,
