Paper Pieced Tilda

I found this Tilda in my drawer and realized I'd never used her. I have got to stop buying stamps until I use the ones I have...Too late, I bought some new Tildas at the Tickled Pink Stamps sale today.

I really want to learn to color these pretty stamps with all the shading and creases that folks like Zoe manage. To build up my confidence, I started with a mostly paper pieced image (although I'm really happy with the way her hair turned out). The papers, sentiment, ribbon, and flowers are from my stash. The sentiment says "Life's happiest moments are homemade."

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Just Magnolia #111 - paper piecing
2. Sketchy Colors #75 - sketch
3. Simon Says - Bingo - I used flowers, brads, and sentiment

Happy Crafting!
