A Card for a Child
please and it doesn't matter if its a Birthday, Christmas or even a Christening card the choice is totally up to yourselves.
But firstly you will want to know who our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website
But as always it comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and even if you don't, they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so it really is a win win situation don't you think.
And for my own choice of images this one was ideal for one of the boys in my family, and believe me we have 8 plus the 3 great grandsons, I do wish we had more little girls but maybe in future we might be lucky.
This little chap is called "Lil Cowboy" and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card and used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used Nestabilitie die to cut him out and then inked him around the edge of the die before removing it out of the die, thats what gives the white edge. I then mounted it onto a fancy diecut also from Nestabilities and this was a brown card. The sentiment is one from my stash and was treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount the same colour brown card and the fancy mount, onto this I have placed the backing paper that comes with the "Lil Cowboy" set and you will find that here. I then placed the mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. To finish off I used some rope and string to create a lasso which was then placed in the top left hand corner and embellishments down the right hand side and one in the bottom left.
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 I hope that you will then want to take part in our "A Card for a Child" Challenge.
