Challenge #81st - The Paper Shelter - "Punch It"

Good Morning Crafters, I hope you are now getting a bit more time to craft now the children have gone back to School again, its amazing at how quickly those weeks have flown by and now the weather has decided to turn nice, mind you I had better not talk to loud or it might turn back to nasty. Anyway this weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is "Punch It" and we want to see lots of punched, diecut items on your cards, I know that most of us have punches and dies to play with nows the time to have fun.
Anyway before I show you my card again I want to thank our sponsors Veronica and Pedro for their support and for offering a prize of $30.
to spend on their website, that's a brilliant prize and its really worth buying some images from The Paper Shelter and playing with them, the really are  brilliant value and they dont just sell images they also sell papers and printable accessories to. You really carnt loose even if you dont use one of their images on your card they will still offer you a prize of 3 digi images of your own choice.
And now here is my card for this weeks Challenge.

I love this image its called "Shes a Manic" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card before colouring her with my copic pens and then used Nestabilitie Die No.8 to cut her out, I then drew around the die to create the mount for her. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the mount.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers I have used are from "Bewitched Night" and you will find them here, they are all based on a blue background, and the second paper I cut two stripes of paper and used my Martha Stewart Lace border punch on them then layered them up below the second mount and put my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side.
To finish of I used some more of the papers and the die-namic rolled flower dies to create the flowers in the top left hand corner, these were attached to the card with some silicone glue and punched out leaves. The last flourish are the Card Candi (this is something that Ive had for awhile and not used before) which were stuck down two opposite corners.
Now that you've seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented design team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "Punch It" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:

This is so cute! I guess she is a maniac! When I first saw her though, I thought about ABBA's "Dancing Queen". Thanks so much for sharing your project with us at Jackson's Digital Expressions.
