The Paper Shelters 73rd Challenge - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning All, well another week has flown by and we have now reached our 73rd Challenge over on The Paper Shelter and for this one its a real easy one for all of us its themed "Anything Goes" and I know how much we all enjoy playing this one.
I do hope those that are interested in joining our very talented design teams have taken part in our DT Call over on the Challenge Blog if your still interested in trying for it, please do as its still running till this Saturday 20th July, please dont forget you must use a Digi image for your card.
Anyway back to this week Challenge and as always we are being sponsored by our very generous Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter website and they are offering you a prize of


to spend on their website, but to be able to win the whole amount of $20. you must use one of their products on your card, but even if you dont you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice, thats one very generous offer which Im sure you carnt refuse.
And now back to this weeks Challenge and for this one I have produced this card.


This little lady is called "Gypsy Dance" and you will find her here, and the paper I have used for my card came with her.  Ive printed her onto a piece of white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used the large Mega Oval from Nestabilities to cut her out, and cut a larger one for her mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and as I said I used the paper that actually came with the image, and you will find it here, I stuck this on top of some blue card and then stuck it to the base card. I then used one of the Swirl dies from Cheery Lynn and placed them either side of her, and with some of some papers from the Victorian Beauty paper set which you will find here, Ive punched out several flowers and shaped them and attached them to the swirls, in the middles I have dropped some pearldrops, and also popped some in the centres of the other flowers. The sentiment was one I downloaded from the internet and printed it onto another piece of white card and mounted it at the bottom on the right.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented design team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge.
