Paper Pieced Spring

The technique I have used to create the background is one I usually use when creating gift cards at Christmas time.  It is a great way to use up the "bits" left over when covering a card with patterned paper.

I would like to enter my card into these challenges:
The Outlawz Saturday Challenge - Paper Pieced Background
The East Wind - A Spring In Her Step
Crafting For All Seasons - Pastel Hues
PINspirational Challenge - Photo Inspiration (pastels)
Glitter n Sparkle - Glitter and Sparkle

I have used various offcuts from other cards to create the paper pieced background.  I kept mainly to pastel shades where I could.  The image is from The East Wind and has been coloured with pastel coloured copic markers.  I added some glitter to the flowers and the balloons.  I also added some clear bling to the card.  The die I have used for the image comes from Spellbinders.
