The Twentieth Challenge for The Paper Shelter "Anything Goes"

Good Morning All, well here we are at our twentieth Challenge and I do hope that you have enjoyed seeing and playing in these Challenges and because the team have arrived at their half year contract some of them unfortunately are leaving the us and they will be sorely missed, so this leaves some openings for new Design Team members so if you are interested in joining us please do pop across to our The Paper Shelter  Challenge Blogspot and put your card and name forward for it, its a fabulous team and we are so lucky to have such a fantastic sponser that has given us such stunning images and papers to play with that you wont be dissappointed if you are chosen to join.
Now back to our Challenge for today, its the old favourite "Anything Goes" Im sure most of us enjoy this theme as it gives us so much scope to play with, and as usual The Paper Shelter are sponsering us
As always The Paper Shelter are offering a gift voucher of $15 to the person whos picked by the random number picker and if that person has used one of their images they will get the full amount, but if they havent it doesnt matter as you will still be eligable for one of them so what ever happens its a win win situation.
And heres my card for this weeks Challenges.
I decided to use this sweet image titled "Look where I found you" and Ive printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic and tria pens, then used the Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut her out then used the die itself to draw around to create the mount out of deep mauve card. The sentiment is one that I Googled and then printed and mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" and the first mount is a piece of mauve card with my first paper one of three papers from The Paper Shelters "Little Sylfie" digi papers the first paper is a pretty all over pink background with circles of mauve and different shades of pink spots and swirls, the second paper is a paisley pattern, and the third a stripe, I then used a large wide flowers ribbon that I wrapped around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount. The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, to finish of Ive used some of the left over paper to create three flowers with a Die-namic flower die, and these were attached to the card with some silicone glue in the top left hand corner, and the last little bit are the three pearls stuck in the two opposite corners.
I do hope that you like my card and its inspired you to go across to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you, and hopefully it will give you ideas to create your own cards and take part in this weeks Challenge. You will also see the post that will allow you leave your cards for the DT positions.
