Challenge #123 - The Paper Shelter - "Punches and Dies"

Good Morning Crafters, oh my weve been experiencing lots of rain over the last few days, I suppose it was bound to happen after so much heat and sunshine, but the only thing that seems to be benefiting is the garden, it really needed a soaking and its certainly getting it now. Anyway I do hope you enjoyed our last Challenge as it was very popular and we had over 300 entries, thank you so much for that.
Anyway this weeks Challenge is being hosted by the "A" Team and its all about "Punches and Dies" and as usual our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

but as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your cards, they do have some stunning images, papers and printables on offer and its worth a visit at the moment as they have a discout voucher thats worth 20%
so this could'nt be a better time to pop across to their website for a browse Here, and even if you don't use one of their products they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cant loose can you.
And now to show you what Ive been up to.
The image I have used is "Fairy Tea Time" and you will find her here, and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die No.1 to cut her out and a decorative one for the mount out of blue card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers I have used are from The Paper Shelters "Lovely Bug" digi paper set and you will find it here. I have used two of them the first is a butterfly one then on top is a strip down the card which has ladybugs on it.
The mounted image was placed towards the top in the center, and then along the bottom I have stuck a teapot border from Cottage Cuts, and the tree border down the right is another of their dies. The butterfly at the top is a Memory Box one, the sentiment was then placed under the image towards the right.
I do hope that now youve seen my Card that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Punches and Dies" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
