WOJ Shopping Willow - "Brown" Girl & Paper Piecing

Hello everyone! My holiday is over (back to school tomorrow!) and I know I am going to be very busy at work for the next two weeks and will not have much time for making cards... So sad! Anyway, let's talk about my latest card! It is a first for me, for many reasons: first monochromatic card, first time I have used this beautiful Shopping Willow stamp and the famous Martha Stewart doily lace punch, first time I have tried paper-piecing, first time I have entered a card into some of the following challenges (namely Whiff of Joy, and ABC)! I hope combining is not a problem because some of the rules do not mention it at all. So this card is for:

Whiff of Joy - Challenge #69 - Coffee & Cream (I can't believe I have used so many brown/ beige Copics)
Stampin' for the Weekend - Monochromatic
ABC Challenge - P is for Paper Piecing (see the dress!)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Mother's Day/Girly
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 20 - Sketch (my image is not round, hope it's OK)!

Stamp: Whiff of Joy - Shopping Willow
Copics: E000, E00, E25, E27, E29, E31, E33, E35, E50, E51, E53, E71, E77, R00 and Chocolate Copic Spica Glitter pen for the necklace (see next picture)
Papers: Toga (dotted), Gemstones, cream & brown cardstock
Tools: MS Doily lace, Cuttlebug folder (d'vine swirls), Bow Easy
Ribbon and pearls

It's so difficult to take one perfect picture!

Fin des vacances et retour au collège demain... Les 2 semaines à venir seront chargées et laisseront peu voire pas de temps pour la création de cartes... Sniffff! Mais parlons donc de la toute dernière...
Une première pour moi, pour plein de raisons: 1ère carte monochrome, 1ère fois que j'utilise ce magnifique tampon "Shopping Willow" et ma perforatrice Martha Stewart (Doily Lace), 1ère utilisation de la technique du paper piecing et 1ère participation à deux des challenges (Whiff of Joy et ABC)! J'ai fait cette carte avec 5 challenges en tête:

Whiff of Joy - Challenge #69 - Café (&) Crème, marron donc ! (J'en ai utilisé des Copics marron/ beiges !)
Stampin' for the Weekend - Monochrome
ABC Challenge - P pour Paper Piecing (voir la robe ci-dessus!)
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Fête des Mères/ Quelquechose qui fasse fille!
Totally Gorjuss - Challenge 20 - Sketch
Bon dimanche à tous et à très bientôt!

Have a nice Sunday, I hope to talk to you soon!
