Challenge #99 - The Paper Shelter "Be My Valentine"

Good Morning Crafters well tomorrow is a special day for lovers so I hope that youve got your card made and ready to give if not you have an opportunity today to create one as we want you to create a Valentines Card for this Challenge. I also hope that you will take part in the Design Team Call that The Paper Shelter are hosting as we are looking for several new members to join our two teams.
As usual our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.


But as always this is providing you have used one of their products on your card, it could be a image, paper or a printable, and believe me when I say that they are extremely good value as the exchange rate is very favourable. Anyway even if you dont use one on your card you will still be receiving 3 digi images of your own choice if you are picked by random org.
And now for my card I have used this gorgeous Mermaid "Enchanted Ocean"and you will find her here.


I have actually used a pre-printed image for my card and the papers that come with it, you will find them here, and then created a easel card to make my card, its a 6"x 6" white card and the first mounts are blue pearlescent card, then I have used one of the backing papers for the inside and mounted the image onto another piece of blue card and placed this also on a further piece of backing paper for the front of the card.
I have then stamped a sentiment onto a piece of white card and cut it out with a heart die, and then placed some lace around the edges and then stuck it in the inside to use as a stopper for the face of the card. To finish of I have used two seahorse buttons on the front of the card.
Now that you've seen my Card I do hope you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Be My Valentine" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
