And they are always adding new images to their website not only that but also some really fabulous papers.
Heres my card for this Challenge
The Paper Shelters gorgeous image of a mother rabbit with her babies and you will find her here, and printed her out onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards Ive used the Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut her out and then used the same die to create the mount out of mauve pearlescent by drawing around the die then cutting it out with a pair of scissors. The sentiment is one of my stash ones I think it might be one of the Pink Gem ones, sorry I carnt remember at the particular moment. Ive cut this out with a circle die and mounted it also onto a larger one out of the same card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with yet another piece of the same mauve card and three papers from The Paper Shelters own designs, the first one is a pretty paisley pattern in shades of mauve and on top of this I have layered up two more of the papers one a pink stripe and the other pink paisley both these have had their edges punched with the doily lace border bunch from Martha Stewart. I then wrapped a piece of beautiful lace that I had from Wild Orchid Crafts and this was attached to the back of the first mount.
I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of with the scrap pieces left I created three flowers with the Marianne flower dies and mounted them onto silicone glue and punched out leaves in the bottom left hand corner.
