Challenge #277 - "Shades of Blue" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers and a Very Happy New Year, I sincerely hope you had a wonderful time and you were lucky to receive lots of fabulous crafty things. And over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot the A Team are starting this year with a challenge of "Shades of Blue" so for this we want to see lots of blue on your cards please, mind you it doesnt exclude hair and skin colour so if you can manage to use mainly blue that would be just fabulous.
But before I show you my card I know that you will want to know who our sponsors are for this weeks Challenge and as usual they are The Paper Shelter themselves and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30 spend on The Paper Shelter website

but this is providing you have used one of their products on your card and this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and you will find lots to choose from on their website and even if you dont use them they will still offer you 3 images of your own choice, so you really cannot loose can you? Please also remember you are allowed to enter three projects but one of these must carry one of our products please. 
And now for the big reveal I hope you like the results

This little lady is called "Snowborder Girl" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I cut her out completely ready to stick her to the background and slightly raised it with mounting foam to give it more depth.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the paper as I said is also from "Snowborder Girl" and came separately to the image so I printed it onto paper and stuck it to the blue mount and used glitter on the snow to give it a bit of sparkle.
I also stamped a greeting in the top right hand corner, as you can see I sent it as a Xmas Card so I hope wont condemn me for using it for my first card of the year.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the girls have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Shades of Blue" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
