Good Morning Everyone, well I do hope that you had a lovely bank holiday weekend, mine was a busy one, hubby went and did his volunteer job with the local steam railway on Saturday and then on Sunday we did our monthly shop, not exactly exciting but at least a necessary job. Anyway this weeks Challenge for The Paper Shelter is "Anything Goes" I know how much us crafters enjoy this challenge and Im sure there will lots of entrants for it, and of course as always we are being sponsered by Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize.
And they are offering a prize of $20. to spend on their website The Paper Shelter, unfortunately to qualify for this prize you must have used one of their products on your card, but at least if you havent they are still offering a prize of 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really carnt loose with this Challenge.
And here is my card for this Challenge.
And for my card I have used "Little Miss Grumpy" and you will find her here, I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I cut her out with Nestabilitie Die Labels No.18 and then used the die again to draw around to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash which I though was quite appropriate for this little Madam.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount I have used is a deep purple card and on top I have used a backing paper that came actually with the image, so when you buy the image you also receive this paper. I then used a doily cut with one of the Cheery Lynn Dies, this one is the Pastry one and I have inked the edges with one of my inkpads, then around the middle I wrapped two ribbons that have been attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. I then cut out two swirls (which I have had for quite awhile) from the same purple card and these were positioned both sides of the image, I also used some of the left over paper (I actually printed out a second one) and with one of my rolled flower dies I created a flower for the top left hand corner which has been attached to the card with silicone glue on top of punched out leaves. The last flourish is the flower buttons that have had some ribbon threaded through the holes and tied in knots, these were stuck in the top let hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of my very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this weeks "Anything Goes" Challenge.
