A little birdie told me...

Click on image to enlarge.
This is my newest PB stamp. I think she's a cutie pie. Don't you just want to pinch her chubby little cheeks? The grey patterned paper is by Basic Grey, the others are K&Co. I distressed the papers, and used two different sewing stitches. The punch is one of the newer MS punch-around-the-page punches. I added pearls for her necklace, earring, and bracelets. The dress is paper-pieced and then topped off using my prismacolor pencils to shadow.
On the inside I used Heritage to cut the mats, as well as the birdcage post, which I made by cutting off the lamp. The birdcage is from French Manor, and the bird from A Child's Year. I took a couple of prismacolor pencils and shaded these too.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Stampin For the Weekend - vintage or shabby
Basic Grey Challenges - paper piecing
Thanks for looking and for any comments you might leave.

You did an awesome job with this, Debbie. Love the color scheme and the little birdies coloring.

Ps. Thank you for visiting my blog. The lifted sentiment was created using a very complicated tool for curling the paper - a pencil lol ;) Give it a try, I'd love to see how you got on! Hugs, Joanna x
