Secret Crafter challenge (and a large card)

The secret crafter challenge this week is 'paper piecing' and this is my card. I made this card a little while ago for my mother's friend. Her grand-daughter was turning 18 and she wanted a large A4 card. As I've stated previously I will make this size card when asked as a special request but they are not my favourite size (as it is a big surface area to fill). Anywho, onto the card. I stamped the stamping bella image, coloured it with my pro-markers and paper pieced her dress and the cupcake (I also added stickles). The gorgeous dp is cosmo cricket and as it's double sided I used both sides for colour matching. I used my sizzix die to cut swirls out of metallic cs by DCWV and added adhesive stones by PM. The sentiment was done on my pc. The flowers are from my stash.
