I paper pieced every single piece of the image! :D Ellie and Squeak are in the same polka dot paper, then I paper pieced the gift 2 more times - the verbiage 'wrapping paper' and then the ribbon is an additional layer. I colored the ribbon with a clear Wink of Stella pen and also added glossy accents for more fun dimension. I also paper pieced Ellie's party hat which also received some clear Wink of Stella accents - love all the sparkle and shimmer...oh, and did you notice Ellie's gorgeous toenails and tail? Yes, they have black Wink of Stella on them too - HA!
I doodled around the edge of the image, added some fun heart ribbon and a 4-looped bow then tied on a little heart charm from PTI's Tiny Tags set.
