The Fourth Paper Shelter Challenge - "Lucky Charms"

Well you certainly did us proud last week the entries increased to over 30 and a lot of them were with The Paper Shelter images, which as you know to be in with a chance to win the 15$ voucher must be used.
I carnt tell you enough how fabulous these images are and so reasonable in price, do please click on the voucher which will take you to their webshop to see what a fabulous selection there is.
This weeks theme is "Lucky Charms" and as its only a week away from St Patricks Day I deceided to use this cheeky looking Gnome for my card.
I love his cheek, sitting there guarding if pot of gold. Anyway I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him and then used the Nestabilitie Die Label No.8 to cut him out, Ive also used the same die to draw around then cut it out with my scissors to create the mount for him. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was treated in the same was as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of lime green pearlescent card with one of three papers from Donna's Bearlymine "Spring Blossoms" and "Plaids" digi papers, this paper is a pretty lavendar base with lots of daisys on it in various sizes, on top of this is a green base plaid paper, and the third is a white base with a green strip on. I wrapped a piece of green seam binding around the middle and then tied a knot of the right hand side with my two clover leaf charms from it.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the left, and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. Now that youve seen my card please do pop over to our Challenge Blogspot The Paper Shelter and see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you.
I will be back presently with yet another posting, which has been requested from a very special Blog, I do hope you will return after 10am to see what it is.
