3D Paper Piecing

Good Morning All,

1st things 1st my hayley and harley card won 1st place at digidoodleshop yay!!! 
2nd I had a load of kipling bags lying around the house that I have never used so I put them up on Ebay and soem sold some didn't but anyhow I made €150 so I treated myself to some magnolia stamps from simonsaysstamp ebay shop so i can't wait for them to arrive :):)

Anyways onto my card I have seen so many paper pieced cards around at the moment and they are fab but what really caught my eye was the 3D paper pieced cards the ones I was looking at were stunning so i decided that I really wanted to try and create my card around that theme now it took me about 3 hours to color, cut and glue and that's just the image it took about another hour and a half to get papers and embellishments sorted but anyways overall I love how it turned out it is by no means up to the standard that you amazing crafters out there in craft land have achieved but it is my 1st attempt so go easy on me lol.

Well here it is I took a few pics so you could try and see the 3D part I think I may have lost a layer on her left hand as it looks a bit odd to me now that I look at it in the pics but I can't seem to find it anywhere lol
