Moving Along with the Times challenge! - Birthdays

I am so HAPPY to be taking part in my first MAWTT design team posting!  The challenge is:

The sponsor for this challenge is: and we were given some images to play with. I chose the cute Bonnet Day and since my little girl's 6th birthday is coming up I made this with her in mind :D
For the first time I figured out how to print on 6x6 DP with my printer so that I could paper piece her dress!! I'm quite happy with the result.
If you click on the photo for a close-up you'll see that I also popped up a piece of the birthday note on her bonnet.
The flower was cut from felt with my Spellbinders Rose Creations.
