Celebrate Paper Piecing!

I recently just found some of the color challenges out there and I am loving them.  I am finding new combinations of colors, that I wouldn't normally think to put together.  Just like this weeks Color Q challenge:
 I love how those colors look together.  I took those colors and this weeks sketch at CPS - 

To make this card -

I used Balloon Kaylee from Some Odd Girl for their paper peicing challenge.  Here's a close up of the paper peicing of her clothes.  This is one of SOG's digital images so I printed the image on the different papers for peicing.  I also printed it on a sheet of glossy paper for the balloons (it's hard to tell in the picture, but there's a little shine to the balloons.when you see the actual card).  I colored her skin, eyes, and hair with Copics.

I finished it off with some SU! brads to match the card base, some thread for the balloons (the thread is actually from my last purchase from Lawn Fawn - their stamps come neatly tied together with this blue thread that matched perfectly for this card!), rounded the cornders, and embossed a Paper Smooches sentiment along the bottom.
