Challenge #142 - The Paper Shelter - "Digi and Sentiment"

Good Morning Crafters, well I dont know know about you Im real fed up with the wet weather, Im beginning to wish it would snow for a change but at the moment is not cold enough I afraid. Anyway Im standing in as a Guest Designer for Marie's Team for three weeks as Ava is moving and of course cant deal with making cards at the moment.
And this weeks Challenge is "Digi and Sentiment" so it means you must use a digi image with a sentiment as well. And as always we are being sponsored by The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of

http://www.thepapershelter.com/

And as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of the products on your card, that could be either a Image, Paper or Printable and you will find they often have special offers and you will find them here on The Paper Shelter Website. But even if you dont you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice, so you cant loose can you?
Anyway here is my card for for this weeks Challenge.


I love this image is called "My Racing Car" and just fabulous for a little lad and you will find it here. I have printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I cut it out with a Nestabilitie square die and a larger one for the mount.
The basic card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, and the papers are from Sweetshoppes "Pedal to the Medal" digi papers and I have used two papers the first a white background with racing cards, and the second is tyre pattern on a white background.
I then placed my mounted image towards the right hand side, and across the top left hand corner is a banner die, in two opposite corners I have placed button embellishments, and the sentiment was stamped onto a tag and then stuck to the exhaust of the motor car.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Digi with Sentiment" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Love this cute little boy card Shirley - the colours you've used make his car so traditional noddy looking - if you know what I mean ( well I know what I mean!) - and yes weird weather up here in the north too - cold and almost cold, damp and sort of not - it can't make it's mind up! Hugs Judith x

I just love this card. The image is fabulous and colored wonderfully! And what really caught my eye are the little race cars on the bottom and the flags in the top corner...those little embellishments are such additions and make this card go from being cute and adorable to being CUTE AND ADORABLE. :) Fabulous papers...just look at the cars in the background sheet...and the flags were perfect. What a wonderful card! Hugs, Gail
