The Paper Shelter s 61st Challenge "Photo Inspiration"

Good Morning Everyone, I dont know how your getting on with the new Blogger page that we use write up our posts on, but Ive had to use "Google Chrome" before I can see all the titles its very frustrating why do they have to change things, its supposed to be progress, but they can keep it as far as Im concerned. Anyway back to this weeks challenge from The Paper Shelter, and before I start I want to tell you about the fabulous prize that Veronica and Pedro are offering to the winner


and this is providing you have used one of their products on your card, but as you can see even if you dont they will still give your 3 digi images of your own choice, Im sure you will agree thats very generous you really should go and visit The Paper Shelter Website and see for yourself what fabulous products they have for you and what good value they are.
And now to get back to this weeks Challenge and for this one heres the photo Ive chosen, the bluebells are all ready coming out in this district and dont they smell gorgeous?


And here is the card I created for this challenge.


Isnt she beautiful, this image its called "Japanese Cute Doll" and you will find her here, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used the oval Nestabilitie die to cut her out, then used the new Floral Oval from Spellbinders and mounted her onto it. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was also mounted onto a oval diecut.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a paper from the Papermania Oriental Papers, a very pretty pink paper with blossom on, Ive then used a tree diecut from Memory Box Dies with a fence diecut and positioned them in the left hand corner. Then I punched out some flowers and stuck them not only on the tree but also on the backing paper at the top.
Now that you've seen my card I do hope you will now go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot a see what the rest of the extremely talented Design Team have created for your inspiration, and hopefully you will take part in this "Photo Inspiration" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

The new blogger interface is awful if you ask me Shirley, I immediately reverted to the old one, why change what works.

The inspiration picture is beautiful and your take on it equally so.

Oh this is adorable Shirley! :) I know, Blogger is a pain. My biggest pet peeve at the moment is that in my reading list (when it decides to give me my reading list that is) I used to be able to scroll down and click on the posts I wanted to look at and it would open up new pages for each of them. Now I have to look at them one at a time cos if I click on two it gets rid of the first one. It will only open up one page at a time. A real pain when I want to just go blog hopping for a half hour!
