The Twentythird Challenge for The Paper Shelter "The Colour Green"

Good Morning Everyone, I dont know about you but these weeks go so quickly by and I dont know if Im on my head or my heels, Ive got to get everything ready this week for the visit of my two grandsons who we are of to Norfolk on Friday to pick up and bring back for a weeks holiday starting this Saturday, wish me luck clearing out my craft room theres a lot to move believe me. Anyway getting back to this weeks Challenge we are asking you to use "The Colour Green" on your card and again we are being sponsered by our fabulous sponsers The Paper Shelter.
And they are offering a fabulous prize of $15 to buy lots of their gorgeous digi images and beautiful papers on their website "The Paper Shelter", believe me you will be really surprised as to how far that amount goes, this full amount is only for those that have used one of their images on their card, but even if you havent dont despair they will give you one of their images of your own choice, this is picked by the random number org.
And now back to my card for this weeks Challenges.
Isnt he gorgeous, this is "Whimsical Dragon" and you will find him here, and Ive also used the papers from "Spring Swing" for my card. The image has been printed onto white card then coloured with my copic and tria pens before being cut out with Nestabilitie Die Label"E" (these were ones that were sold by Create and Craft" and then used the same die to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one I created on my computer that I found by googling, this also has been mounted onto green card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card and one of three papers from the "Spring Swing" paper set you will find them here, this first paepr is a rather ornate pattern, and on top is a simpler one that Ive cut into a strip and used a dinosaur border punch on both edges, then on top of this is another of the papers thats been mounted on green card and stuck down the middle of the last paper.
The mounted image was then stuck in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive created with some left over paper two daisy's with the Die-namic daisy die, and layered it up on some punched our leaves.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will now pop over to The Paper Shelter Blogspot and see what the rest of the design team have got in store for you, Im sure you wont be dissappointed and hopefully this will inspire you to take part in this weeks "The Colour Green" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
