A Gem of a Challenge DT Card - Paper Piecing

It's challenge time again at A Gem of a Challenge, and this time our theme is "Paper Piecing".  I've used one of the new Pink Gem digis, Cheers Chilly, which I've coloured with Promarkers, highlighted with Star Dust Stickles, and paper pieced the scarves and hat bands.
 I've kept the design of this card quite simple to make it suitable to give to a man, I printed the image nice and big and added a fun sentiment, so I wasn't left with oodles of space anyway.  The papers are last year's Papermania, Christmas in the Country, I used these for the paper piecing too, to which I added some voile between the layers for interest and texture.  The only embellishments I added were three snowflakes made with a Nellie Snellen punch and emboss set, to which I gave a touch of sparkle with some Star Dust Stickles.
