Challenge #111 - The Paper Shelter - "Love is in the Air"

Good Morning Crafters, Im so sorry for not being around much for the last couple of weeks, since a hospital appointment over a week ago I have been suffering rather badly with a condition that has really not made me feel like crafting and Im also trying to make samples for my friend Sarah Hallam, so have been concentrating on getting them done. But as its my turn to host The Paper Shelter Challenge this week I have made this card for this weeks Challenge "Love is in the Air" so before I show you my card I will tell you who are our sponsors and the fabulous prizes they have to offer.
As always our very generous sponsor is Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous main prize of $30.


And as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card, but dont despair even if you haven't they will still offer you 3 digi images of your own choice, so you carnt loose with this Challenge. You really should go and visit The Paper Shelter Website and see for yourself what fabulous value and stunning images, papers and printables they have to over you, plus which they always have a special offer running, so its always a good time to go and browse for yourself here.
And now for my card.


I have used this fabulous image of "Pepe L'Souris in Love" and you will find it here, and I have printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I have used a rectangle die to cut him out, and the Nestabilitie Postage Die for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been stamped onto white card and then cut out with a Heart Die from Nestabilities and mounted on a larger one from red card.
The main card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, the papers are also from The Paper Shelters "Pepe L'Souris" digi paper set, and I have used three papers the first is a stripped one with cheese on, and the second with hearts I have cut into a 5" square and then used the Martha Stewart  Heart Border and Corner punches on it. I then layered it up on top of the first layer and with a piece of red muslin I have wrapped a piece of lace from my stash, around the middle which was placed on a wide piece of red ribbon and attached it to the back of the first mount. I also have used the last paper and cut a large heart and tucked that behind the lace.
On top of this I have placed my mounted image and stuck the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have created a red ribbon and stuck this on the heart at the top on the right and placed a large gem brad through the ribbon.
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 my very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Love is in the Air" Challenge.
