Say hello to Winnie

This is a very special card as it was made for my best friends birthday. Her and her hubby have just bought a funky caravan so as soon as I saw this image from Saturated Canary I had to have it. I bought it ages ago but didn't want to use it until I had created and given her the card, soppy I know but hey if you have a best friend then you treasure that friendship don't you!!

She loved it which was a relief and here it is.
I coloured her skin, hair and boots but decided that as I've been colouring in soooo much lately that I would do a bit of paper piecing instead so the caravan, curtains, bunting and her clothes are all put together like a jigsaw :o)
I made the friend ticket and flower, decorated a plain background paper with sponged on clouds and stamped images and I stitched a decorative corner in place with some fab lace which my mum brought me from a recent visit to Poland. I wanted to add a bit more bunting because, well I adore bunting.
