The Sixth Paper Shelter Challenge - "Flower Power"

I just carnt believe that we have already got to our sixth Challenge for The Paper Shelter but here we are and this weeks challenge is themed "Flower Power" I can well remember the 60's and the flower power people singing the hippie songs and dressing in the most outlandish clothes and it seems this week we are drifting back towards them, and some of my fellow team chums have even used a new image thats just fabulous for this particular challenge.
Again this week I must bring your attention to our rules, to be in with a chance to win our 15$ voucher you must use one of the The Paper Shelter images and you will find them here and believe me they are very good value, and stunning as well. You will love some of the cute and querky images that are available and they are even selling papers to go with some of them, so do please pop across to their website and see for yourself. As I said we are sponsered by The Paper Shelter themselves and they are offering us a Voucher for 15$
 I have chosen to use this image and its called "Fairy Emma" and if you click on her name you will be able to see her for yourself.
Isnt she a sweetie, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut her out then drew around the die to create the mount out of green pearlescent card. The sentiment is one that I found on the internet by googling "Flower Sayings" I printed this also onto white card before cutting it out with my rotatrim and mounting it also onto green pearlescent card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of the same green card and one of two papers from Donna's Bearlymine Digi Papers this first one is one from the "Spring Blossoms" the second one is from the "Spring Stripes" and this was also mounted onto a piece of the same card, I then used a piece of the same card cut it out with a circle Nestabilitie die and ran it through my cuttlebug with a flower embossing folder. I then layed a piece of lace across the card with a strip of green seam binding and attached both of these to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was them positioned to the right hand side and the sentiment at the bottom on the left, and to finish of I created a flower spray in the top left hand corner with five yellow roses of different sizes and these were stuck on the card with silicone glue and some punched out fern and rose leaves.
Now that youve seen my card do please pop over to our Paper Shelter Blog and see for yourselves what stunning creations the rest of the team has created for you and hopefully it will give you inspiration to take part in this weeks Challenge.
