For My Friend

Good morning!
I hope you all are bundled up and comfy. :-)
Today's card I made using a day for daisies digi called "Warm Milk"
Isn't it sweet?
I paper pieced the dress and colored the rest with Prismacolors.The papers are assorted. Some are from the DCWV stack called "Linen closet" ; the striped paper is unknown. 
And a close up.
I really should have printed out the dress on copy paper , not cardstock, cos you can see the raised edge but ho hum and learn.

Below is my favorite part. The heart (just free cut with scissors) and stitched onto the paper and the button flower.
the button flower was made using a fabric K&Co button/brad . I pierced the brad through a silk flower and stuck it on with a glue dot.
It's pretty effective, don't you think?
Oh, and the eyelet. Eyelets just dress everything up.

I would like to enter this in:

It's super sweet! Wonderful paper piecing and FABULOUS stitching! I haven't learned to turn the corners yet, {I'm afraid!} I'll just have to go and do it though, what's the worst that can happen? Nevermind...don't answer that...
Super work, my friend!
