The Eighteenth Challenge for The Paper Shelter "Punches and Dies"

Sorry Im late it didnt schedule properly.
Good Morning All, Im so glad you enjoyed my samples for Sarah I do hope you will watch the show next week, now I must get back to this weeks Challenge for The Paper Shelter, dont these weeks go by quickly I carnt believe we are almost half way through this year, in just a weeks time we will be exactly midsummer and Im not sure what happened to the weather as it hasnt been very nice so far. Anyway this weeks Challenge is for "Punches and Dies" and again our Fabulous Sponsers are The Paper Shelter, and they are offering this voucher for $15
and that is if you use one of their gorgeous images, but not to worry if you dont and if you are the one picked at random you will still be able to choose one of them instead, and believe me there are some stunning ones to pick from and if you like to go across to their website here you will see for yourself that they not only create such cute images but also some beautiful co-ordinating papers to.
This is my card for this weeks Challenge
I have used this sweet image called "Spring Break" and Ive printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic and tria pens, I then used my Nestabilitie Die No.16 to cut her out then drew around the die to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and Ive dont exactly the same with this as the image. Ive also used a small leaf stamp around the edge with several different colours of green.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of cream card with one of four papers from The Paper Shelters "Sophie in the Country" digi paper set I have then layered up the rest of the papers by using the doily edge border punch from Martha Stewart, and a larger flower one for the strip across the middle. I then popped some small pearls in each of the centres of these flowers.
I positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. I also used some pearls at the bottom on the left and top on the right. To finish of I have used some of the left over papers to create a daisy flower in the top left hand corner this was then stuck to the card with a few punched out fern leaves.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will pop across to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented team have for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part it this weeks Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
