Challenge #239 - "Away with the Fairies" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well can you believe that we are already into March, for me this is a very busy month as I have so many family birthdays that Im afraid that I will forget someone that I like to get well ahead with my cards.
I have been suffering with a chest infection and looking after a sick neighbour who has now been taken into respite care so a little time has been returned to me, though today I have a hospital appt and will be scheduling this post.
Well todays Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is themed "Away with the Fairies" and this was a phrase that my daughter told me I was that, though it may well be true as I love anything to do with the little people.
Before I get to deep in my young past you will want to know what is going on and this will be sponsored by our very generous sponsors Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.


But 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 choose from at The Paper Shelter Website here, and even if you dont use one of these they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice. But we only allow 3 entries into our Challenges and at least one of those must use on of The Paper Shelter products.
And for my card I used this gorgeous image:-


And this little lady is "My hair" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and then cut her out with a Little B die and a fancy one for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of pink card the papers are from "Bewitched" papers and you will find them here, I have used 3 different papers the first I used on the base mount and the other two I cut into squares and used a heart corner punch on each of the corners these were layered up and the mounted image was then placed towards the top on the left and the sentiment was then put under it in the right hand corner.
To finish of I have used some Nestabilie leaf die cuts and some punched out pink flowers to create a frame around the mounted image.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope 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 want to take part in this "Away with the Fairies".
