The Third Paper Shelter Challenge - "Scrap It"

Good Morning Ladies, it doesnt seem possible that we have already reached our third challenge here at The Paper Shelter, I do hope that this one will receive some more entrants as the last one "Seeing Red" didnt go down as well as we expected, maybe it was because we had enough of red because of Valentines Day. But this time should be a breeze for you as it involves using up all those scraps that you have in your goody bag.
Firstly left me give you the rules for entering this Challenge, you dont have to use one of the The Paper Shelter images but if you wish to be entered in the prize draw you do, they are very inexpensive and if you click on their website The Paper Shelter here you will be surprised at just how much they are. Heres the prize if you do a fabulous $15 voucher for you to buy any images of your own choice.
Anyway heres my card for this Challenge and the image I have chosen to use is called "Steam Punk Girl" and she was a dream to colour.
I printed her onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens then cut her out with my rotatrim and did the same with the mount. The sentiment is one of the C&C stamps and this given the same treatment as the image.
The base card is 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of lilac pearlescent card, and one of three paper off cuts I found in my stash, the first one is one of Donna's Bearlymine Digi papers called "Spring Flight" (Donna has a special Spring Sale at the moment on some fabulous new papers) the second and third papers are from the Kay Miller Downloads "Wings" they are all mounted on pieces on lilac card and arranged on the base card. I then wrapped some sissal ribbon around the middle with a sparkly ribbon mounted on top, and a knot tied at the edge.
The mounted image was then stuck on top towards the left and the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive used some of the same left over papers to create paper flowers with my Retro punches, and these were stuck at the top on the right with some punched out oak leaves on silicone glue.
I do so hope you will now pop over to The Paper Shelter Blogspot and see the rest of my fellow team members stunning work and please do try and take part in our Challenges as it would be such a shame if after all the hard work that Donna and Cheryl have put into starting this Challenge Blogspot it was to fail.
This is a weekly Challenge and it will finish next Tuesday evening.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
