Good Morning Crafters, well it looks as if the weather has started to reverse back to the wet one again and I suppose we ought not to be to greedy at least we had a lovely couple of weeks and I just hope we shall have some more of those in the future. This weeks Challenge over at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is all about using "Charms" on your Card, these were very popular a couple of years ago and Im sure you have them somewhere in your stash I know I have a fabulous selection to choose from.
As always our 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 rule that you must have used one of their products on your card and this could be either a image, paper or printable but even if you havent they will still offer you 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really have nothing to loose by taking part in this Challenge, but please do go and pay their website The Paper Shelter and see for yourself what fabulous products they have on offer, and they are always updating their library all the time.
Anyway I have used this cute image for my card
This one is called "So Pretty" you will find her here, and I printed her onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards used my Nestabilitie die to cut her out and a fancy one for the mount.
The main card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, the papers are also from The Paper Shelter and this set is titled "Shopping Girl" and you will find them here. I have used four different designs, the first a blue background with pink and blue flowers on, the second is a pink one and I have used a flower border punch from Martha Stewart, the third a darker pink and this has pink flowers and the last mount is a double blue strip on and this is placed behind the image.
On top of these I have placed my mounted image, and the sentiment is placed down the right hand side and this also from the stamp die set and as the fancy mount. To finish of I have used one of the Sue Wilson Bow Dies and created the bow in the top right hand corner, from this I have dangled a mirror brad and attached to this is a bag and dress charm.
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 to will want to take part in this "Charming" Challenge.
