Tellen's Place Polka dot challenge

This is a new blog to me, but it looks like a fun one. I will be following this one. The challenge I'm entering is Polka dots. They gave a free image to use as well.  So I found some polka dot paper (I knew I wanted to paper piece it). But boy is it an ugly paper! Why did I buy it?hmmm Anyhow, here is my version of the challenge.
I wanted her hair to be a "bad" hair dye, that you might do at home, so there's some blue in with the gray/black. Oh dare I wanted to "rouge" up her checks also. I'll have to add that now.

Happy Crafting,
Shirley G
