Wow our first week has flown by and we had a fabulous response over 30 entries and we are now onto our second Challenge, and this one is themed "Seeing Red", before I start I want to remind you that to be eligable to win the $15 prize you must use one of the The Paper Shelters images and you will find them here on their website, and believe me you wont be dissappointed in them and the price is so reasonable and lots of variety, do please go and look and browse the fabulous images that theyve got to offer.
Now back to the Challenge, The Paper Shelter are our sponsers and are offering us a prize of $15


And this is my Dream Team card for this weeks Challenge:-

And I decided to use this image and its called "In the 1920s" and I love it, Ive coloured her with my copic pens then used the Labels No.8 Nestabilitie Die to cut her out and then drew around the die to create the faux mount, before attaching it to the mount Ive used a swirl stamp around the edge with some red ink. The sentiment is one of the C&C stamps and Ive stamped and mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card and one of Donna's Bearlymine Digi "Summer Light" papers, its a beautiful striped design of roses in pink and white. The second paper is a pure red paper and is also mounted on a red mount. I then wrapped a piece of rafia ribbon around the middle with a strip of red satin ribbon on top.
I then positioned my mounted image to the left hand side, my sentiment at the bottom on the right, and to finish of Ive put a large red rose at the top on the right and mounted it on top of some punched out leaves.
Do please pop over to our Challenge Blog and see what the rest of the very talent team members has to show you, Im sure it will give you lots of inspirations.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
