Challenge #401 - Music and Dance - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, can you believe we are now into October and already the weather is turning from something beautiful to something cold and wet and dark, not my cup of tea Im afraid, so Im hoping this weeks theme for The Paper Shelter is


Music and Dance

this must cheer everyone up its always vibrant and colourful.
And you will find some 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.
For this weeks card I have used this image



This little lady is titled "Tango" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens then cut it out with a rectangle die and a larger one out of red card with a fancy one.
The basic card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of red card and the backing paper from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. On top of this I have wrapped a red ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount, and the mounted image towards the left, and the sentiment was stamped also onto white card and fussy cut and layered on top of a piece of red card thats already been used. To finish of I have used some red pearls around the edge and a lamp diecut next to the image over the ribbon.
Now that you've seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this  "Music and Dance" Challenge to.

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well I sincerely hope that you are enjoying more free time now the children are back at School, I dont know about you but it is nice not to have a load of them screaming and shouting around your back gate causing our dogs to continually bark, but having raised four children myself I looked forward to them going back to School as by the end of 6 weeks holiday they were getting rather bored.
This weeks theme is all about Embossing, this can be either by Embossing Folder, Dies or even Embossing Powder, for me I used the die

This young lady is titled "Trekking Girl" you will find her here, and I thought this image was ideal for my eldest daughter who loves being outdoors, either jogging or walking, as she now lives in Indonesia she has lots of opportunity to do both.
I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a rectangle die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount out of green card. 
The base card is a 6.50"x6.50" white card with a first mount out of green card the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. The sentiment is a stamp from my stash and has also been mounted on a piece of green card and placed in the bottom right hand corner.
I then placed my mounted image in the middle of the card, and in the top two corners I have used some punched out butterflies in green card and then placed some gems along the folded edge.

For my own card Ive used this image "Jogging with Rythm" which you will find here, Ive printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used a rectangle die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount in pink card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card and the first mount is also the same pink card and the mount, on top of this I have used the backing paper that came with the image and you will find it here. The reason for using this gorgeous image is that my eldest daughter is very keen on jogging and often goes out with her hubby around the Indonesian park where she lives and I felt it was an idea subject to make a card for her.
The sentiment is one from my stash and mounted in the same way as the image, Ive also used a strip of lace on top of a wide pink ribbon which has been wrapped around the middle of the card then the mounted image was placed on top in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
