Challenge #143 - "All Wrapped Up" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning fellow Crafters, well Ive been caught out this morning I made sure that the Challenge Post was written up but totally forgot to write up my own blog, what a daft person, Ive been worrying all night about the inlinz thing and it worked perfectly this morning and I went to look on my own blog and my own post was missing I cant believe I forgot to write it up and schedule it as I normally do. Anyway it wont do to carry on I must write up my post so here we go, this week over on The Paper Shelter its all about "Wrapping Up" originally when I picked this theme it was supposed to be about wrapping up against the cold but a lot of the team saw it as something else and have gone with it so I will leave the interpretation up to you.
Anyway as always our very generous sponsors are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

And this comes with the usual stipulation that you must have used one of their products on your card and this could be a image, paper or printable and even if you dont they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice if you are chosen by random org, but I do urge you to pay a visit to their website The Paper Shelter and see for yourself what brilliant value they are especially against the pound.
And now for my own card

For my image I used "The Beautiful Skier" and you will find it here, and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her then I cut her out completely. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was placed onto a diecut snowflake.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of white pearlescent card and on top of this I have used one of the Bearlymine digi papers this a snowflake design on a blue background. Then I used more of the pearlescent card and die cut two landscape backgrounds and then placed them at the back of the card towards the top, then I placed my cut out image on the left handside and then I cut the ski's and poles (not sure of the official name for them never having skied) and placed the two ski's against the left handside and the poles are stuck in the snow with the sentiment towards the right handside. To finish of I have punched out a snowflake and placed it in the ski.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope 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 "All Wrapped Up" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
