The Tenth Challenge for The Paper Shelter - "Inspired by Nature"

Well yet another week has gone by and we have now reached our Tenth Challenge and this weeks Challenge is the theme "Inspired by Nature" and Im sure it will give you lots of ideas to make a card to this one, but before I start showing you what I have created for you I want to remind you to be able to win this fabulous voucher
you must use one of The Paper Shelter images and you will find them here and believe me you will be surprised at how many you get for this amount they really are quite inexpensive. And they are always adding new images to their website not only that but also some really fabulous papers.
Heres my card for this Challenge
For my card this week Ive used this sweet image "Bee Bear" and you will find him here Ive printed him onto white card before colouring him with my copic pens after which Ive used the large oval Nestabilitie Die to cut him out and the Scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one that I got from TLC and found that it was ideal for this little character.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green pearlecent card with one of Donna of Bearlymine Designs "Spring Flight" papers (I should like to bring to your attention that Donna has a Easter Sale on at the moment you will find the link at the top of my blog) this first paper is a white background with bees and flowers on, on top of this is one of Donnas plaid papers from one of her other digi sets, and the third is yet another of the same Spring Mix of papers from Donna. I then created a circle die cut with one of the new Die-namics dies in yellow pearlescent card and then positioned my mounted image on top, with the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of with the left over papers I have punched out flowers and moulded them with my deet tool and and then mounted them on top of some punched out leaves in the bottom left hand corner. Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will now pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of my fellow team members have created for you and I sincerely hope it will encourage you to take part in this challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
