Challenge #151 - "Spring Delights" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Fellow Crafters, Ive been so busy lately that I nearly forgot to write up my post for this Challenge, I thought Id better get my finger our and make amends, so welcome to this weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot  its all about "Spring Delights" at least the daffodils are now out and its looking a lot sunnier than it was a few weeks ago, but its still cold and wet here in Gloucestershire.
As you will know we have at last picked our new DT members and our new Team member will start on the 9th April and I will introduce her more on that Challenge, anyway todays one is as always sponsored by Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

but this is providing you have used one of the products on your card, and even if you havent they will still give you 3 digis of your own choice, but I do urge you to pay a visit to The Paper Shelter website and see for yourself what fabulous value their products are so do please pop over here and see for yourself.
And now for my card.

For my image I have used "Spring Breeze" 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 Labels Die No.34 and a fancy one for the mount out of pink card. The sentiment is one I googled and printed it onto white card then used another label die to cut it out.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card and the papers I have used are from The Paper Shelters "Spring Zoe" digi paper set and you will find them here. I used a pink spot one for the first mouont and the second is a green one and on the edge I have used Tonic Butterfly Border punch down it, then on top is another pink card which was also mounted onto pink card and placed down the center.
I then used some green card and the La La Land tree die and placed in on top of this mount and stuck the mounted image in the center and the sentiment down below on the left hand side. To finish of I have used several pink flowers and placed them on the tree diecut.
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 then want to take part in our "Spring Delights" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

This card is the BEST card I've ever seen using this image. This card is one of the best cards I've ever seen, period. I adore the color. But, besides the color, this image is colored perfect. It is truly outstanding. I love the dies you used around the image. The little flowers on the green diecut are so perfect and airy looking on this card...actually an outstanding addition of flowers that give that flighty feeling. Your little sentiment is fabulous. I love the diecut around it and the words are so wonderful. I adore this card. This TPS card gets put on my desktop computer screen so I can keep admiring it. I LOVE LOVE this card!!!! Hugs, Gail


Gorgeous card Shirley - love the beautiful image and the way you cut the umbrella outside the frame. The flowers and soft Spring colours are divine!
Hope all is well with you and yours - Hugs, Sylvia xxx
