The Twentyfirst Challenge for The Paper Shelter - "Lots of Dots"

Good Morning Everyone, yet another week has gone by and weve now reached our twentyfirst Challenge, Im so glad that years dont go by so quickly but we are certainly doing well with our entrants for our Challenges, and I want to thank you so much for making it such a outstanding success. Anyway getting back to this weeks Challenge and this one is themed "Lots of Dots", and of course our sponser is the fabulous company The Paper Shelter
And they have a $15 gift voucher for the winner thats picked by random number choice and if youve been using their images for your card you will win the whole amount but please dont dispair even if you havent you will still be eligable for one of their gorgeous images of your own choice. I must admit that its been a pleasure to use their images and beautiful papers and Im so lucky I get to use them all and here is my card for this weeks Challenge.
 The image I have chosen is titled "The Finishing Touch" and you will find it here the papers are also from  The Paper Shelterand they are from the "Birthday Cupcake Papers" and you will find them here. Ive printed my image onto white card then coloured it with my copics and tria pens, then used Nestabilitie Die Labels 14 to cut it out, I then drew around the die to create the mount for it. The sentiment was created on my computer then printed and mounted in the same way with some brown card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of brown card with one of four papers from the "Birthday Cupcake" papers the first one is a white background with cupcakes all over it, the second, third and fourth papers have lots of spots on, and they have pink, brown and yellow backgrounds with multi coloured spots on and which have had the Martha Steward hole border punch used on both sides, then in the middle I have wrapped a brown grosgrain heart ribbon around and fixed it at the back of the first mount. I also used two strip's of the same brown card to create two borders top and bottom with the same Martha Stewart punch.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right, and with the left over paper Ive created three flowers with the Marianne flower dies and stuck them to the card with some punched out leaves.
Now that youve seen my card please do pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented team have created and hopefully this will inspire you yet again to take part in this weeks Challenge of "Lots of Dots".
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
