The Twelve Challenge for The Paper Shelter - "Bling it Up"

Good Morning Everyone, yet again we have reached another Challenge and this weeks one is themed "Bling it Up" and you can bring out all your glitter and sparkles and really go to town. There are new rules for winning prizes now and they are as follows, anyone can take part in the Challenges and those that use The Paper Shelter image automatically are entered in the draw for the Voucher
and will receive images to the value of $15 and those that use other images will win one of The Paper Shelter images of their choice, we are hoping that this will bring more entries and once youve seen what fabulous images and papers there are you will be sorely tempted to buy and use them yourselves with a better chance of winning the main prize.
Heres my DT card for this weeks Challenges:-
For my card I have used this gorgeous Victorian Beauty for my image and have printed her onto white card then used my Copic and Tria pens to colour her, I then cut her out with my rotatrim and mounted her onto a mount of green pearlescent card, I have also popped some gems on her bows, and necklace and used some glossy accents on her mirror. The sentiment is one I created on my computer and then printed it and cut and mounted it in the same way as my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card with one of three papers from The Paper Shelters "Retro Paisley" paper set, the first paper is a yellow background with several shades of green paisley pattern on it, the second is a yellow based one and has been mounted on a circle mount that was stuck on top of the first mount, the third mount is a red paper on a strip down the front. Over these I have wrapped a piece of beautiful lace that I had from Wild Orchid Crafts, with a piece of red satin ribbon laid by the side of it at the top.
I then positioned my mounted image towards the left, and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of I have created a flower spray from one large red rose with four rose buds, two pearl pins and glass beads this was stuck to the card with silicone glue on top of some punched out fern leaves in the top right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card please do pop across to The Paper Shelter Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for you, and do take part in this fabulous challenge this week.
