Another DT card for The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Ladies, well Ive just spent a couple of lovely hours at a job I dont enjoy and thats defrosting my freezer, its one I put of as long as I can but as I should have done it before Christmas I thought I really out to get it done now before our next big shop, and guess what I had loads of water all over my carpet, so now Ive got to wait for it to dry out, oh well such is life, good job hubbys not around or he might be moaning at the wet patch so lets hope it dries out before he gets home later this afternoon.
Anyway todays card is the second DT card for The Paper Shelter and Ive used this gorgeous "Sweet Dreams"  its a new image of theirs, Ive printed it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, I then cut it out with my circle Nestabilitie Die, the mount is cut out with a Die-namics die and I got this from Tracy at Dies to Die For she gets them out to you in double quick time. I have used Donna's "Peach Dreams" papers from Bearlymine Designs (dont forget her Copic Pens blogcandy) and the two papers Ive used have a beautiful combinations of soft colours in them, the first one has been mounted on pink pearlescent card, and the second Ive used one of my Martha Stewart all around border punches, and on top Ive wrapped a pink ribbon around the middle.
The sentiment is one of the LOV circle stamps and this stamped and cut out with a circle die before being mounted on a scalloped circle diecut and positioned at the bottom on the left, the mounted image before being stuck to the card, I arranged lace all around the edge and then positioned it at the top on the right. To finish of Ive cut out two corners with the Marianne dies and positioned them in the two opposite corners and two small roses were then stuck on top.
