And they are generously sponsering us for each of our Challenges and you will need to use one of their images to be in with a chance of winning this fabulous prize and you will then be able to use it in their shop:-
I have really enjoyed playing with their images and this is my DT card for this first Challenge which must incorporate "Buttons and Bows"
I have used this cute image of a "Tooth Fairy" and printed it onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, after which I cut it out with my Nestabilitie Labels Die No.1 then drew around the die to create the faux mount for it. The sentiment is one I found on the internet and then printed it and mounted in the same way as my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card and one of Donna's Bearlymine Designs "Spring Blossoms" and on top of this is one of her plaid ones Ive used one of my all around Martha Stewart punches on this and placed it on top of the base layer, across the middle I have wrapped seam binding in green and attached it to the back of the first mount, then created a bow with some of the same colour seam binding and then have sewn a button to the middle.
I then positioned my mounted image to the left and tucked the sentiment in the top right hand corner. I do so hope you will pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and see what stunning cards the rest of our very talented team have created for this very first Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Awwww, just gorgeous Shirley! The last time my eldest (6) lost a tooth he wrote the tooth fairy a note asking her to write one back to him and let him know her name. She left him a cute little note saying her name was Tulip and how much she liked the handmade snowmen decoration he had in his bedrooom at the time. Jack was thrilled when he woke up that she had written to him and went and told everyone at school that the tooth fairy's real name is Tulip x
