Challenge #175 - "A Card of Many Folds" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Fellow Followers, well a lot has happened since my last Challenge for The Paper Shelter, we have been away to Guernsey for a week spending time with my friends and their little lad Nicolas, we had a really fabulous time and the weather was just perfect, thank you so much Jo and Stephen for having us. Also my eldest grandson has returned from Afghanistan and I do so hope that this will be his last posting there, I believe hes actually had three and I know he misses his son so much to, so lets hope the RAF officially leave by Christmas as theyve promised.
Anyway this weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter is "A Card of Many Folds" so I will show you my interpretation in a moment but first you will want to know who our sponsors are and they are Veronica and Pedro of 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 card and that could be either a Image, Paper or Printable but even if you havent they will still give you three digi images of your own choice. Their library at The Paper Shelter website is full of surprises and the value against the £ is just unbelievable so do pay them a visit and browse for yourself.
And now for my card

I do apologise for the side of the card being in shadow I meant to take another photo but couldnt find the card so I do hope it wont spoil your view of it. I have used this gorgeous "The Time of My Life" image (remind you of anything?) and you will find them here, I printed them onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie rectangle die to cut them out and a fancy one for the mount out of pink card.
The base card is basically a 6.50"x 6.50" white card thats been folded twice to create this gateleg card, and the papers are from The Paper Shelters "The Happy Couple" and you will find them here, and I used two papers a pink and a blue patterned design, and these were mounted onto pink card and put inside and on the two sections in the front.
The mounted image was placed on the very front one over the fold, and the sentiment is a stamped one and this was also placed on a mount of pink card and then placed on the back section in the bottom right hand corner. To finish of I have used three different sized pearls in the top and bottom corners that I could reach.
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 "A Card of Many Folds" Challenge.
