Challenge #177 - "Shabby Chic" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, do you know I almost forgot to write up my DT post for The Paper Shelter, its been a busy couple of days and it went out of my head completely, I was just going to turn of my computer when I realised I hadnt written it up yet. Anyway this weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is all about being "Shabby Chic" and I know its debatable as to what is termed as this anyway we leave the choice upto you how you wish to interpretate it. And when you go to visit the Challenge Blog you will see that we have two new Team Members on my A Team and I do hope you will give Jan and Sandra a very warm welcome.
As always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website

http://www.thepapershelter.com/

But as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card, and that could be either Image, Paper or Printable but even if you havent they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice.
And now I want to show you what I have made for this Challenge.


For my card I have chosen this "Time for Tea" image from The Paper Shelter and you will find her here, and I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her. Afterwards I cut her out with a oval Nestabilitie Die and used a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first mount of beige card, I then used the background paper that came with the image and on top of this I have used a circle doily and distressed it with a beige inkpad.
I then placed my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment is one I stamped and mounted on a smaller oval die and mount which was then placed in the bottom right hand corner. I then used several sized roses to create two flower sprays which were placed either side of the image, then below I have used some clock faces and the final flourish are the pearls placed in the top right and bottom left hand corner.
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 to will want to take part in this "Shabby Chic" Challenge.
