Shy Emmylou

I shall be very glad when this week is over, so thank goodness that it's Friday tomorrow! It's been one thing after another.
I have a lot of birthdays this month, so I'm trying my best to get on top of my card making. Not quite sure whether I'll manage to make all the cards I need but I'll certainly try!
This was a very quickly put together card. I tried paper piecing for the first time and was quite pleased with how it turned out.
I wanted to put those teeny weeny buttons on her dungarees but I couldn't find where I'd put them, so I stuck pearls on instead. Of course I have now found the buttons - typically. And no the pearls won't budge, so looks like I'm stuck with them.
List of goodies: Stamp is one of Kraftin' Kimmies available from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie, DP is BoBunny Kitchen Spice from The Hobby House and flowers are Prima and Wild Orchid Crafts. She's been coloured with the usual DI's.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
