I decided it was time to do some paper piecing and the My Favourite Things Pure Innocence is perfect for the job. I've used Sending Blessings and I've paper pieced her with Echo Park I am Mom. Before I forget I brought the dies too, this is handy when placing her on coloured or patterned card.

I decided to place her on a heart and made a scene with blue and green card, first I cut out the green using Simon says Stamp Stitched Slopes and Hills then cut out using their Nested Heart Dies.

I added three clouds using Memory Box  Puffy Clouds not really thinking where my images would go by the time I stuck them down I really need one more but it doesn't look too bad.

I added some blossom to the tree using Simon says Stamp Mini Flowers and Leaves I'm thinking Spring had enough of winter already.

I carefully cut out the centre of the main background using Simon says Stamp Stitched Rectangles, added a white border then layered back on the patterned paper hiding the hole in the middle this way I only used one sheet.

Finally a sentiment which I used the Simon says Stamp Get Well Soon die to finish. I think I've remembered everything.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Very cute, Debby. I love that you paper pieced her outfit. And what a clever idea to put the little scene inside of the heart. I must say, I really like that Get Well Soon die. I think it's going on the wishlist!!
