Challenge #139 - "Shopping Spree" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, well yet its another week passed and we have a brand new Challenge over on The Paper Shelter its themed "Shopping Spree" and its caused quite a few problems with the Team to find appropriate images for it and you will find the rest of the girls have been very inventive with theirs. But before I show you what Ive created I have some fabulous news for you, we have two new members joining the A Team and that is Angela who has taken the place of Janie who unfortunately had to stand down last week as she has some family problems she wants to spend time over, and we were lucky to have Angela already on the Team as she wasnt officially suppose to start until January and will now start straight away, and now we have yet another new Team member to and that is Anne and she will be taking Louise's place come January but as Judith is unable to join us this week she is standing in for her, and Im sure you will see her joining in other Challenges before she starts officially. Its a bit complicated but I hope you understand and give the girls the welcome they deserve.
And now back to this weeks Challenge and as always our very generous sponsors and stunning owners and creators are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

But as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of their images, papers or printables on your card, and even if you havent they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cant loose can you. Dont forget to pay a visit to The Paper Shelter website and see for yourself what brilliant value they are and you will find it here.
And now for my Card.


I have used "Shopping Girl" for my image and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then used Nestabilitie Die Labels 8 to cut her out and the fancy one for the mount out of pink card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, the papers are from the Papermania "Born to Shop" and I have used three of the papers, the first a white background with hearts on, the second is a pink and white stripe one and I have used a Martha Stewart heart border punch on both edges and placed it on the first layer, then the third is a fun paper with flying handbags on a white background which was mounted on another piece of pink card.
The mounted image was then placed in the center towards the top and the sentiment was placed on a banner die across the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used the left over papers to create three flowers with a Die-namics rolled flower dies and placed them in the top left hand corner on top of some punched out leaves. The final flourish are the gems in the two opposite corners.
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.
