Challenge #435 - Holiday Time - The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot

Good Morning Paper Shelter how quickly the last month flashed by and now we are into July, in a couple of weeks we will be hosting our Holiday Challenge so that the Design Teams can take a break from commenting and this will give them time to spend with their families.
This weeks theme is hopefully a fore comer of perhaps some of you will get a chance to have

Holiday Time

in the UK its been such a difficult time for us and no doubt you to will have suffered with this awful Covid virus and been restricted from even going to the park so to be able to have a bit of time perhaps visiting the beach will give us the strength to cope with the coming Winter which no doubt the virus will rage yet again.
I think its time for me to get of this awful subject and at least give you something to look forward to and so 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 is titled "Fun over the waves" and you will find it here, Im afraid you wouldnt get me having a go at this but Im sure any of my grandchildren would given half a chance. I printed it onto white card and then cut it out with a square die and used a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was also cut with a smaller square die and again Ive used a square smaller die cut to mount it on.
The square die is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of blue card and then used the backing paper from the same design set as the image and you will find it here. On top of his I have placed some flag diecuts across both the top corners and then placed my sentiment in the bottom right hand corner with the image in the middle.
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  "Holiday Time" Challenge to.

Ive used this cute image and she is called "Everyone can Fly" and you will find her here,  I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens, afterwards I used a square die to cut out and a fancy one for the mount which was cut from yellow card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount also from the same yellow card and the paper papers are from Graphic 45 paper pad which is all our Fairies which is so apt for this image. the first paper is a very pretty paper and on top I have used a check one and a butterfly punch down the sides and placed this on top.
The mounted image was then placed in the center towards the top with a sentiment which was also stamped onto white card and cut with a square die and then placed in a diamond angle and placed at the bottom right hand corner.
