Happy Monday everyone - The Sugar Bowl-Lilian's sketch + ABC Design challenge-paper piecing

Happy Monday everyone...did you all have a fabulous weekend I hope so, mine was very very quiet, in fact I think I saw a few tumbleweed go past at one stage lol...well it wasn't that quiet I guess...I did watch the new Sherlock Holmes drama last night, brilliant, I love Sherlock Holmes and still read the books so it was just my cup of tea...my card today is for the Sugar Bowl challenge and I use this fabulous little Gorjuss girl stamp called A Little Birdie told me, paper pieced and coloured with Distress ink, I'm entering this for the paper piecing challenge over at ABC Designs challenge too...the papers are from the free paper pad from My Minds eye, aren't they fab...I cut out some flowers are a greeting from the back pages and added some yummy pink ribbon and a bow for her to sit on...I hope you like it and have a fantastic happy Monday everyone
