Challenge #131 - The Paper Shelter - "Shabby Chic"

Good Morning Crafters, well tomorrow Im of to Scotland for my eldest daughters Wedding on Saturday and this will be my last post for a few days, hopefully the weather will stay nice and dry and not to chilly as Ive already been warned, keep your fingers crossed.
Before I tell you again about our sponsors I must introduce you to our two new DT members and they are Anna and Eileen (who has joined us from Maries Team) and is unfortunately unable to join us for this first Challenge as shes away on holiday at the moment, and I do hope that you will pay a visit to both of their blogs and congratulation them on joining us and wishing them all the best during the time with us. Anyway this weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter the theme is "Shabby Chic" and as always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a prize of $30.
But as always the rule is you must have used one of their products on your cards, that could be either a image, paper or printable and you will find them here with brand new images being uploaded often.
But even if you havent used one of their products they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, that is one generous offer dont you agree you really carnt loose with this Challenge.
And now for my Card here it is:-
 For my card I have used "Adorable Miss Hall" you will find her here, I have printed her onto white card and I have coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I cut her out completely. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was then placed on a banner die cut from Memory Box.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pale green pearlescent card, then on top I have used the backing papers that came with the image and I have printed several pages and then layered them up, but before I actually did this I used a Tim Holtz distressing tool on the edges to distress them.
I then cut several leaf sprigs with the Tattered Lace die and placed them around the top of the top layer, and created a flower and placed it in the corner. The cut out image was then placed in the center of the top layer and the sentiment banner down below.
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 Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will also want to take part in this "Shabby Chic" Challenge.
