Challenge #149 - "Away with the Fairies" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, well I dont know about you but here we are already on the third month of a new year and another week has flown by over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and we are now on to a new theme and this week its all about Fairies, so we need to see your images on your cards.
And dont forget we have a DT Call running at the moment if you are interested in joining our DTs please do go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see for yourself what is expected of you.

But before I show you what Ive been up to as always our very generous sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website.

But as always this comes with the usual rule that you must have used one of their products on your card this could be a image, paper or printable and you will find them on their website The Paper Shelter and believe me when I tell you that they are brilliant value and you will find that the exchange rate is very good, and even if you havent used one of their products they will still give you three images of your own choice, so you really cannot loose can you?
And now I want to show you my card, I hope you like it.

And here she is its titled "Enchanted Dreams" and you will find her here, and I have printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her and afterwards I used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.4 to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount. The sentiment is one that I googled then printed it and cut the mount for it from another of the Nestabilitie Tag dies.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pale green card, and the papers are from Kay Millers "Fairy Dust" digi papers, I have used two of the papers the first a green background with leaves on, and the second a flower one and a Cheery Lynn doily die and then placed in on top of the first mount.
I then cut out the sprigs with a Die-namics dies and stuck them down the left hand side, I then placed my mounted image towards the right with the sentiment underneath on the right hand side. I then used some of the left over papers from the same paper set to cut out the rolled flowers and these where then stuck to the sprigs in various places, and to finish of I have punched out two butterflies and stuck them on the sprig as well. The final flourish are the two flower buttons at the top on the right hand side.
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 then hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Away with the Fairies" Challenge.
