The Thirteeth Challenge for The Paper Shelter "Black and White plus One"

Good Morning Everyone, well this might be our thirteeth Challenge but I definitely dont think its going to be an unlucky one for me or you, this weeks Challenge is a easy one really its "Black and White plus One Colour" and I know that many of you love creating Monochrome cards so heres you chance to shine.
Of course our Fabulous Sponsers are The Paper Shelter.
And they are offering you a prize Voucher of 15$ if you use one of their images on your card, but even if you dont and you are chosen for our winner by random choice you will win one of the gorgeous images. Believe me when I tell you these images are stunning and so are the papers, I really dont know where our very talented Creator "Veronica" gets her ideas from but shes certainly is extremely clever.  And here is my card for this Challenge:-
And for my card Ive used this image of "Disco Girl" and you will find her here I have printed her onto white card then used my copics to colour her, afterwards Ive used Nestabilitie Label No.6 Die to cut her out and then have drawn around the die to create the mount for it, I also used the same die for the sentiment which is one of the CC stamps, and have mounted it again in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of yellow pearlescent card with the first paper from the "Gothic Girl" paper digi papers set from The Paper Shelter, you will find them here  for the second piece I have used a 5"x 5" square of yellow paper (not quite sure where I found this one) and used one of the all around punch sets from Martha Stewart and stuck if slightly of centre, then of top I have put my last mount which is yet another of the papers from the "Gothic Girl" set.
I then wrapped a piece of white lace around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount, then positioned my mounted image towards the left and my sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have stuck a lace swirl flower from Prima Flowers at the top on the right on top of a large lace bow.
I do hope that now youve seen my card you will pop across to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this weeks Challenge.
