Pieced Flower

Hello Everyone.
It is a glorious Spring Day and I was in the right frame of mind to salvage a card that turned out to be a complete failure when I made it into a tall card last week, with the intention of entering it into PB tall card Challenge, needless to say it did not happen.

So I gently pulled it apart, as I wanted to keep the image intact as that part was okay!!
As it happens this weeks Saturday Challenge at Penny Black #152 is
'Fussy and Fancy' so not to waste a really good image, I  made full use of what I had spent quite a bit of time on and made this fancy card.
I am hoping it is going to be fussy enough to qualify, I will be the first to admit that I have made fancier ones, but I did not want the image to be swallowed up by unnecessary elements.
I am much happier with this design, the first attempt at placing this lovely image on a TALL card was disastrous.

 I think you will agree it is a sweet card.
