A Spoon Full of Sugar -challenge 34

Our challenge this week at A Spoon Full of Sugar is 'Paper piecing' I have been lacking enthusiasm to craft for a few days, but made this card at the weekend thank goodness. I think this is one of the challenges I suggested and then I struggled with it, silly me!!
I am rather pleased with the final look of the card just a little unsure of the stamping I did on the background of the image?This was the first time I had used my 'Rope swing' stamp that Matthew bought me for christmas, it's one of Elisabeth Bell's designs for Sugar Nellie's, I so love Elisabeth's work. I'm contemplating buying the WOJ stamp kit, it would be one weeks cake money but I think it will be soooo... worth it!!
The Design Team now have the chance to choose the Guest Designer each week, and this week it was my turn, my Guest Designer is the super talented Chris - Sketching Stamper, I so love all of Chris's work and her colouring is amazing! Please nip over to the blog to see Chris's and all of the other Design Team cards, you won't be disappointed.
The prize this week is a very cute High Hopes stamp called 'Lovebirds' just perfect for upcoming Valentine's cards! This has kindly been donated by Bryony over at Silly Monkey Crafts.

Absolutely beautiful card Joanne! Your new stamp is gorgeous and so is your colouring. I think the background swirls look great and your paper piecing is so pretty in that lush paper. Thank you so much for your kind words and for picking me for the challenge this week, it's so much appreciated and was great fun. If you get the new kit, I'm sure you'll love it, well I think that's guaranteed with Elizabeth Bell's wonderful designs. Chris x
