Challenge #122 - The Paper Shelter - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Crafters, well this week over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot we are combining with the "B" Team for this weeks "Anything Goes" Challenge, its a special one and it will last for two weeks, and we wont be commenting on the entries as we are taking a two week break and will be back again on the 7th August to start a new season. So I hope you will forgive us and enjoy taking part in this fortnights Challenge.
We are as always being sponsored by The Paper Shelter and they are offering a brilliant prize of $30 to spend

on their website The Paper Shelter, but this is providing you have used one of their products on your card, that could be a image, papers or printables and they do have a fabulous choice to pick from. But even if you dont they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice. Please do and visit their website here.
And for my card I used this image


Its called "A Refreshing Drink" and you will find it here, I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her. Afterwards I used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.8 to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount out of purple card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been placed on a fancy tag, again from Spellbinders.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of purple card, the papers I have chosen to use are from First Editions "New Bloom" paper pad, the first paper is flowered pattern on a white background and the second is green background with hearts on and I used a circle punch die for the doily.
I then cut a tree from some of the deep green card its one by La La Land and is called "Heart Tree" and I placed them on top of the doily and then the mounted image to the side of it. I then cut a border again from La La Land and thats called a "Tulip Border", this was then placed across the bottom of the card with the sentiment tag stuck towards the right. To finish of I have used the same green pearls and placed them down the top right hand side.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Teams have created for your inspiration, and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge.
