Summer cornfields

I've made this card for a couple of challenges including Win & Tonic where I've gone for these themes: hot colours, the technique of paper piecing. I will be giving it to a friend for her summer birthday as I thought the bright colours would really cheer her up.

I made it using mainly Tonic products: Sun Ray Scene, Pine Cone Season and September Harvest dies, the tuft of grass is from the Golf Set dies, plus the Layered Leaves embossing folder. Most of the card is Tonic's Craft Perfect card stock plus kraft card. The Sun Ray image is layered on to the Kraft card embossed using the Layered Leaves and then all on to a cream card blank. The centre disc is layered on to the front using foam pads to give dimension.

I'm getting better at paper piecing which I must admit I did find a bit of a faff to start with but the results are worth it in the end.

I hope you like it, if you've time to leave a comment I'd really appreciate it.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
