Challenge #115 - The Paper Shelter - "Flower Power"

As Im writing this up before last weekends trip to Norfolk I carn't tell you how it all went for my great grandsons Christening but I promise I will tell you all about it in a separate post (you will see a separate post on my No.2 blog www.nannieflash2.blogspot.com) you'll find a link on the right hand sidebar. Anyway this weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is "Flower Power" and of course this means we want to see lots of flowers on your card.
As always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.


But this is providing you have used one of their products on your card, but even if you haven't they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice. I do urge you to pay a visit to their website here and see for yourself what stunning product they have, and that could be images, papers and printables all of brilliant value so do go and browse and see for yourself and you wont be able to leave without buying a least one of them.
Anyway for my card this week here is the result.


And I have used this teddy image and its titled "Teddy with Flowers" and you will find it here, I have printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used a square Nestabilitie die to cut him out, and a Fancy one for the mount, I carnt remember exactly what this one is called. The sentiment is one from my stash and has also been mounted on a piece of pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount I have used pink card, and then used "Vintage Flowers" papers from The Paper Shelter and you will find them here. The first paper is a beautiful cream background with lots of beautiful flowers on, the second I cut into a square and I used one of the border and corner punches from Martha Stewart which has been placed in the middle of the bade mount. I then cut two leaf swirls from Die Namics and these were placed down the left and along the top of the base layer, and the mounted image was then placed in the center and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
To finish of I have used lots of carnations on the flower spray in six places. I do hope that you like my card and that you will now pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully take part in this "Flower Power" Challenge.
