Challenge #321 - New Beginnings - The Paper Shelter

Happy New Year Paper Shelter Followers, can you believe we are already well into January, I sincerely hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and are now ready to start creating new cards for 2018, and for me I am hoping that by now I am recovering from my second Cataract Operation and not for yet another cancelled appointment, will keep you updated on that one. Good News I had my eye operation on Saturday 6th, and although its still a bit sore and bloodshot its recovering well.
Anyway for this first Challenge we are picking I feel is a ideal theme as my second eldest grandson and his wife have just become 1st time parents and  the little chap arrived on January 1st and he is my third great grandson, yes it is a boy and I was rather hoping for a little girl but maybe in time I will get my wish, and this is why the theme I have picked is

New Beginnings

This can be anything in your life which is a new start perhaps a baby, new house etc but we will leave that choice up to you.
But firstly before I show you my card 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 now for my card Im hoping it will be appropriate for my new great grandson what do  you think?


This little chap is titled "Boy with his Toys" and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card before colouring him with my copic pens, afterwards I used one of the Nestabilitie Labels to cut him out and then used a ink brush around the edge. I then used a fancy one for the mount out of blue card, then sentiment is also using the same die set and the sentiment was stamped onto the small one which was cut out of white card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first layer out of pink card, the backing paper is also from the same set as the image and you will find it here. On top of this I placed my mounted image in the center and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that will you pop over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for you and hopefully you to will be inspired to enter "New Beginnings" into our  Challenge.
