Dilly Beans Challenge - Feeling Blue?

Good morning everyone and Happy Friday!!  Today I'm bringing you another new challenge over at Dilly Beans!  This week's challenge is BLUES!  I have a friend who has been a bit 'blue' lately so I made this just for her!  I printed out image #200 - Cheekie four times.  Once onto my Neena white cardstock, then again on solid blue stock, and two different basic grey patterned papers.  I paper pieced her hair, cheeks and bows.  I colored the rest with my Copics (I colored her first, of course, THEN paper pieced!)
As you can see, I've trimmed her out entirely and popped her up onto foam adhesive.  I used a mish mash of papers from my blue scrap bin.  Some is SU!, some is from an old matte stack and the rest were just scraps.  
I used my MFT Oval Dainty Doily as the focal point for the interior of my card as well as a good place to write my note!

As my muse, I've used the Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge right HERE!

I hope you've enjoyed and been inspired to create with us at Dilly Beans!! 

Crafty Hugs!
