Twentyfourth Challenge for The Paper Shelter - "Anything Goes"

Now before I start this post it has had to be scheduled, as at the moment I have my two grandsons staying with me and Im not able to get into my craft room so I do hope you will forgive me if I dont get to visit you to comment at the moment, its a bit hectic with not only the boys but also the new puppy Missy. Anyway before I start I want to say a very big thank you and to say we are going to miss two fabulous Design Team members and they are our Team Leader Cheryl, what an outstanding job she has done for us Thank You so much, and also our very own Kevin who we shall miss to as hes such a talented member of the team and a brilliant commentor on our work, Thank You both so much. As of next week we shall be split into two design teams and I will have some news for you as I said the other week, but back to today its our Twentyfourth Challenge and this one is themed "Anything Goes" and I know how much you enjoy this and it gives you a free hand to pick your own design and image. Our fabulous sponsers are as always the very talented couple from "The Paper Shelter" Pedro and Veronica.
And they are offering you a fabulous prize of $15 that can be spent in their shop The Paper Shelter, and if youve actually used one of their gorgeous images you will be entitled to the whole amount and even if you havent you will still be eligable for one of them. The range of images and co-ordinating papers is unbelievable they are quite stunning, and the price is also within your budget believe me as the amount you would get with this voucher is a lot.
This is my card for this Challenge.
I have used the "Summer Games" image for my card, isnt she just gorgeous and you will find her here, and the papers are "Spring Swing", I have printed the image onto white card and coloured it with my copics and Tria pens then used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.4 to cut it out and used the die again for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash I think its probably from TLC but I carnt rely on that.
The base card 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of yellow card and my first paper from the "Spring Swing" set and you will find them here, this is a yellow paisley looking pattern then on top is a strip mounted on yet another piece of yellow card this has hearts and stripes on, this was laid down the left hand side, the third paper has again been mounted on yellow card and this pattern is a yellow background with flowers on and this was laid across the base card. Ive then positioned my mounted image towards the left and the sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of Ive used some of the left over papers to create two large flowers and threaded a pearl brad through the centre and then stuck them to card with some silicone glue on top of some punched out leaves.
I do hope that now youve seen my card you will go and visit the rest of the Design Team over on  The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and hopefully this will inspire you to take part in this weeks Challenge of "Anything Goes".
