Challenge #421 - Easter Time - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well can you believe we are already into April and we are more isolated because of this dread Coronavirus than ever, I expect in your neck of the woods the same thing is happening to you, here in the UK we are very limited as to what we can do and it doesnt make it any easier as both my family and hubbys live far to far away to help us in anyway.
Anyway lets bring some sunshine into your lives its only days away to

Easter Time

and Im sure the children wont allow us to forget that as they love having a pile of chocolate for myself being Diabetic I have to limit my intake of sugar.
And you will find some beautiful images over at The Paper Shelter and there's lot to choose from for this theme to. Our Sponsors are and as always 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 image "Easter Coast" is quite a vintage image from The Paper Shelter its still available here, I printed it onto white card before colouring him with my copic pens, afterwards I used a square Nestabilitie die to cut it out and a larger one to create the blue mount behind it.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the backing paper is also from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. I placed this backing sheet on top of the blue mount and wrapped a wide ribbon around the middle and attach it to the back. On top of this I have placed my mounted stamped sentiment in the right hand bottom corner, with the mounted image in the middle.
To finish of I have used several Easter egg buttons down the right and left hand side. I will probably now post this card to one of my great grandsons.
 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  "Easter Time" Challenge to.

I printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it then afterwards I cut it out with a large square Nestabilitie die and and even larger one and blue card for the mount.
The sentiment is a stamp from my stash and this has also been stamped onto white card and then mounted onto another piece of the same blue card for the mount.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a further piece of the same blue card for the first mount and then I used the backing paper that comes with my image and you will find that here. I placed this with a piece of football ribbon which I had wrapped around the card and fixed to the back onto the white base card and then placed my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment down in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used several football buttons down the right hand side and even one on the sentiment.
