Craftmad Daily Pink Challenge - Day 5 - Paper Piecing

Well it is certainly wet here.  I think just one too many prayers were said for rain to green things up and cool things down.  What a down pour we have had yesterday and last night.  Our seasonal creek is flowing and it is only October.  Normally, we don't see that until December.
It is certainly cooler and the plants and grass will be loving it.
Although our dead bamboo at the front that we sort of got side tracked from cutting it down has collapsed.  So guess what I will be doing some of today.

Today I have another card for the Craftmad Daily Pink Challenge.  This is for the Day 5 challenge which was paper piecing.

I decided to use my brand new SquidgiDigi (Flamin Bug) that I won over at Make it Monday last week.
I am really happy with the clean look of the card.  It was so tempting to add a black border line but I resisted.  The patterned paper I found in my collection. The headlights and windscreen are pink bazzill. I added Dimensional Magic to the headlights.  Tyres and number plate I coloured with my copics.

Have a wonderful Wednesday.
