Challenge #181 - "For the Man in your Life" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, I hope that you are ready for the celebrations tonight, we have been experiencing Fireworks for the last week and no doubt it will go on till this coming weekend. This year its a bit more frightening for our dog as someone let one of not very far from her and of course it made her jump, so if you have pets dont forget to make sure they are indoors.
For the Challenge this week over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is all about that MAN in your life, and if your like me you have a very special man/boy you can think of who would love one of your cards. Its not always easy to create cards for them I know but as I say if hes someone special its time you had a try.
Of course we are being sponsored by 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 of course this is providing you have used one of their products on your card and this could be either a image, paper or printable and you will find lots to choice from on their website The Paper Shelter and at the moment they have a sale on their Halloween products so do give them a browse and see for yourself what they have to offer  you. But even if you dont use their products they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice to play with so you really cannot loose can you. And please dont forget that we only allow 3 entries into our Challenges and at least one of them must have a TPS Image or product on it.
And now for the card I created for this Challenge.


 For my card I have used "The Aviator" and you will find him here, I have printed him onto white card and coloured him with my copic pens, afterwards I cut him out using my rotatrim and also used a piece of beige card for the mount. The sentiment was created on my computer and then printed and mounted up in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a mount of beige card, the paper is the backing paper that comes with this particular image "The Aviator" and you will find it here. I then placed my mounted image in the center towards the top and the sentiment below. To finish of I have used some candie in all four corners, just to balance up the design.
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 "For the Man in your Life" Challenge.
