Challenge #243 - "Spring Delights" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers well hopefully by now the temperature has started to improve I know over Easter it was wet, windy and cold so keep your fingers crossed that this weeks "Spring Delights" will give the weather a boost and start it getting warmer.
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 this is providing you have used one of their products on your card and this could be either a Image, Paper or Printable and you will find lots to choose from at The Paper Shelter Website here, and even if you dont use one of these they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice. But we only allow 3 entries into our Challenges and at least one of those must use on of The Paper Shelter products.
And here is the image and card I created for this weeks Challenge

And this little lady is titled "Charming Spring Girl" and you will find her here, I then printed her onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, and then cut her out with a Nestabilitie rectangle die and a fancy one for the mount, the sentiment was a rubber stamp and it has been layered in the same way as the image.
The base card is 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of pink card the papers are also from The Paper Shelter and they are called "Zoe - Spring Papers" and you will find them here, and I have used several of the papers and layered them up as shown, I also used a square doily (from my stash) to.
The mounted image was then placed towards the right with the sentiment in the bottom left hand corner, and the final flourish are the 3 pink pearls down the left 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 hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Spring Delights" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
