Challenge #83 - The Paper Shelter - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Everyone, I dont know about you but it amazes how quickly the weeks are flying by its not to long now before we have to start really getting into our Christmas themes, I do hope youve already started making cards I know I have. Anyway back to this weeks Challenge and we are giving you a free range as its "Anything Goes" and I know you love it so Im expecting a big response so start crafting.
But before I show you  my card I will tell you about our very generous sponsors and they are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a prize of
and they are giving you $30 to spend on their website, and believe me that goes along way but this is only if you use one of their products on your card, but even if you dont they will still give you 3 digi's of your own choice.
Now here is my card.
I have used this gorgeous image of a couple dancing its called "The Time of my Life", it reminds me of a clip from Dirty Dancing doesnt it you? You will find it here, I have printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels Die.8 to cut it out and then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one I created on my computer and printed it and mounted it onto another piece of blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers I have used are "Sophie in the Country and you will find it here, and I have used a beautiful blue and flower background for the first mount, then used a pink paper and a Cheery Lynn Doily die, then on top is a blue check paper on a third mount and a yellow one is the last one.
Ive then placed my mounted image in the middle and tilted it towards the left, the sentiment was then positioned at the bottom on the right. To finish of the card I have created a floral spray in the top right hand corner, I have used carnations and other flowers and these were placed on top of some silicone glue and punched out leaves.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop over to The Paper Shelter Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will take part in this weeks "Anything Goes" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Jules said...

Hi Shirley

Your card made me smile.

Firstly it reminded me of one of my favourite films .. .. Dirty Dancing.

Then I wondered about the strength in the arm of that chappie .. .. quickly followed by the trust that poor lady was putting in him LOL!!

Love the colours you have used and all those gorgeous flowers.

I hope all is good with you and hubby at your end.

So sorry I don't get to visit so much nowadays. The world of weddings is very busy and very time consuming .. .. but very enjoyable.

Take care

Love Jules xx
