The Nineteeth Challenge for The Paper Shelter "Fun in the Sun"

Good Morning All, well I do hope that this challenge titled wont put you of Im sincerely hoping that with all these Summer Challenges it might just wear of on the weather but I wouldnt bank on it. Anyway another week has flown by and weve now reached our Nineteeth one and this one the theme is "Fun in the Sun" and as always our fabulous sponsers are The Paper Shelter
And they are offering a prize of $15 for the random winner and you will be able to pick images of your own choice from their website The Paper Shelter and if youve used one of their images on your card you will be able to spend it all, but if not it doesnt matter you still receive one of your choice instead. The Paper Shelter have not only got gorgeous images they also have some fabulous paper sets that go with some of them, I do hope you will pop across and visit and browse for yourself as they are such good value and the exchange rate really does go a long way when buying either.
Heres my card for the Challenge.
For my card I have used "Sophie in the Country" for my card and then printed her onto white card and coloured it with my copic and tria pens before using the Nestabilitie No.1 die to cut it out, I then used it to draw around to create the mount for it. The sentiment has been done in a similar way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of mauve pearlescent card and one of two papers from "Sophie in the Country" digi set, the first one is a very pretty yellow flower background that Ive used the deep edged border and corner punch on, then on top is a strip of a green paper that has also had the edges punched this time with the cherish border punch down both sides, afterwards I wrapped a bright flower ribbon across the middle and attached it 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, afterwards I created a flower spray in the top left hand corner with multi coloured cherry blossom flowers and punched out fern leaves which were stuck down with some silicone glue. The last thing I have done is to cut a 8"x 8" square and used the same deep edged Border and Corner punch to create a bigger mount for the base card to be stuck down on.
Now youve seen my card please do go across and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in this weeks Challenge.
