Experiment: Paper Pieced Hair

For this sample I made for the new RRD Paper Piecing Challenge, I wanted to do something a little different.  I always paper piece clothes, but what about hair? 

I used a piece of designer paper which coordinated with my background panel and had some fun.  To give it a little more dimension, I outlined her 'do with my copic markers.  Oh course, she's a ginger.  What else would I do?  The dress is from the same piece, with the flowers pieces on top.  Unfortunately, I didn't get any pattern on the dress piece.  Ah, least it matched.  Her hair bows are from the background panel of paper.  Isn't she cute?

I added a curved sentiment banner and called it a day.  Super fun!
