Challenge #249 - "Charming" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well todays Challenge is all about using a Charm on your Card I can remember a few years ago when these were very popular and I know if your anything like me you have a full box of them so I dont suspect you will have any trouble finding one to add to your card but even if you do any piece of metal is allowed on your card instead.
But before I show you my own card I had better tell you who is our sponsor and of course its our very generous Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter


and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website here, and if you have used one of their gorgeous images you will be entitled to the whole amount but even if you havent you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice. But please if you are going to enter more than once, you are able to take part 3 times but one of those must carry one of our images please.
And for my Card I used this little lady


She is "Smart but Sexy" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I cut her out with my rectangle Nestabilitie Die and a fancy one for the mount out of beige card. The sentiment was created in the same way with the same die set.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of beige card and the backing paper is also from the same design set as the girl and you will find it here, and I then used a circle doily in the middle with the mounted image stuck in the middle of the card. I put the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have created a bow out of beige ribbon and hung the laptop charm from it.
And the final flourish are the
in the top right hand corner and the bottom left one. 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 "Charming " Challenge.
