Challenge #211 - "Holiday Time" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, this weeks Challenge over at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is right up my street at the moment is themed "Holday Time" and it wont be long now before the children break up for the long Summer Holidays and with having such gorgeous weather its certainly feels like it already, so Im looking forward to your card design. 
And this weeks Challenge as always is being sponsored by Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter

and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website but this is providing you have used one of their products and that could be either a Image, Backing Paper or even a Printable, but even if you have not they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice to play with. So you really cannot loose can you? And the choice on their website The Paper Shelter is amazing they are always updating their library so the choices as fabulous and the price of them is really good to.
And when I saw this image I thought this was absolutely ideal for this Challenge

I dont how many of you have suffered because of the gulls, but I certainly have, and to be honest we have quite a lot in our town and as we live between to rivers the Severn and the Wye its not surprising I suppose. Anyway this image is called "That's something you dont see everyday" and you will find it here, I have printed her onto white card before colouring it with my copic pens. Afterwards I used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.39 and a fancy one for the mount.
The sentiment was stamped onto another piece of white card and mounted up with the same yellow card that my image was.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount of yellow card, and the papers used for this card are from Sweetshoppe "Sunnyside Up" and I have used 4 papers from this digi paper set, and layered them up as shown across the center, two of them have been punched with the shell boarder from Martha Stewart.
I then placed my mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner, and the final flourish (my tip) are the two icecream/lolly buttons down the right hand side (from my stash).
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 A Design Team have created for your inspiration and I hope that you will be inspired to take part in this "Holiday Time" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
