Challenge #343 - Ribbons, Buttons and/or Pearls

Good Morning Paper Shelter followers, this weeks theme is hopefully one that most of us can find in our stash

Ribbons, Buttons and/or Pearls
  
I hope that you have fun searching for these to use on your card and we look forward to seeing what you create using them.
 And you will find beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from to. Our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.


But don't forget they will only give you the whole amount if you have used one of their images on your card but don't worry if you haven't, they will still give you 3 digi images or your own choice if you are picked as a winner.
And here is the card I created using this theme:-


For my own card I used this image which is called "Grace" and you will find it here, I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie die to cut her out and a fancy one out of pale blue card for the mount. The sentiment is from my stash I have used a fancy one for the mount I have placed it on.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is also the same blue card that was used with the image, the paper is also from the same "Grace" set and you will find it here. I then placed a ribbon around the card and attached to the back of the first mount. The mounted image was then placed on top of this ribbon and the sentiment then in the bottom left hand corner.
To finish of I have used some pearl swirls down the left hand side.
 Now that you've 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 "Ribbons, Buttons and/or Pearls" Challenge.

The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with another piece of the same yellow card for the first mount the papers this time are from Pink Gem Designs and are called "Licorice Cream" and I used two of the designs and laid them across the card and a Martha Stewart border punch along the edge of it and then put a piece of yellow ribbon just under this edge.

This little lady is titled "Daises in Paradise" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to cut her out and then cut it out with one of Sue Wilson's square dies, and used a larger one and some pink card to cut out the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and was then stamped and using a smaller die from the same Sue Wilson set I then cut it out and placed it on a larger 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 backing paper is also from "Daises in Paradise" and you will find it here, on top of this I placed my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.

Challenge #219 - Its a Mans World - Pink Gem Designs

Good Morning Gemsters, I hope you all enjoyed your Bank Holiday, I certainly took advantage of the heat and got my carpets shampooed something I had been waiting for to get them dry and Im really delighted with the results. How long they will stay looking sparkling is another matter as its still a building site in the field next door to us and of course all the dust, mud and grit soon get carried into our house and onto the kitchen carpet.
Anyway this weeks theme is all for the men in our life so the theme is

Its a Mans World

 Using Relaxing Dave

and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie die to cut him out and a larger one for the mount out of red card. You might wonder why I have put a strip of red ribbon around the right edge, I accidentally cut the end of and have to stick it back together and hopefully it covers the cut.
