Paper Pieced Thanks

Mmmm, just spent a lovely hour watching the Great British Bake Off on telly ... lots of gorgeous looking cakes and biscuits yummmmmmm.  Only downside is that I always end up rooting through my larder for something 'nice' (preferably covered in chocolate LOL)!!

I've no mojo at the minute, the layout of this card was inspired by one I spotted in the freebie digital issue of Paper Crafts, I LOVE this mag!

All images and sentiment from various Paper Smooches sets. I paper pieced my tree canopy, butterflies and apple, and added some bling for good measure!  The green panel at the bottom is popped up on dimensionals.
I used my Cuttlebug to die cut the wee tag (Taylored Expressions Tag Stacklets), then decided it was a tad too big so trimmed it down the sides and at the bottom!
Sorry for the pants photo ... the dark evenings are here already :(
