Go Green...

Today I have spent the day crafting, when really I should have been getting on with some housework.
I will just have time, after posting this, to rush round with the hoover and spray some furniture polish about - make hubby think I have been busy!!

This is for my SIL's birthday next week - I hope she likes bright!!
The background is a single piece of Kaisercraft DP, that I didn't want to cover up too much. Luckily there was an area of white space where I could place my circle and image.

When I have a large area, like this Diva's dress, I usually resort to paper piecing ('cos I don't trust my colouring skills) but I got the Copics out for this one and I'm really pleased with the way it turned out.

Ribbon from my stash
