The Sixteenth Challenge for The Paper Shelter "Glad for Dad"

Good Morning Everyone yes youve guessed another week has gone by and weve now reached our Sixteenth Challenge and this week we are trying to get ready for "Fathers Day" which isnt all that far away and so this challenges theme is "Glad for Dad" and we are of course being sponsered by "The Paper Shelter"
and they are generously offering $15 for the random winner of the Challenge providing theyve used a Paper Shelter image, but if not they will still win one of their images and of course who ever wins gets to pick them of their own choice, and you will be amazed at just how many you will get for this amount believe me. And they dont just do digi images they also do gorgeous paper sets to go with them you will find both of these here.
And this is my card for this weeks Challenge,
and this little chap is called "Little Cowboy" and you will find him here and Ive printed him onto white card then coloured him with my copic pens, then cut him out with a Star Nestabilie Die though I have to cut him outside the die, I then cut out two more same sized stars in red pearlescent card, then ran them through my cuttlebug with a small star folder, the sentiment is one of the Whimsey Digi images and you will find it here, this was also mounted onto a piece of red pearlescent card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card with one of  two of the matching "Little Cowboy" papers and you will find them here this first paper is a red background with stars on, and on top I have stuck a strip of blue paper that has stars and dots on, but down the edge I have used a star border punch from Martha Stewart, on top of this I have used yet another strip of the same pearlescent card thats been run through the cuttlebug with a larger star pattern on.
I have then positioned my stars at a jaunty angle then stuck my image on top in the middle, the sentiment was then positioned at the bottom on the right and to finish of I have stuck several charms down the right hand side at the top.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go across to The Paper Shelter Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for you, and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in the is Challenge to.
