Challenge #144 - "3 Designer Papers" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, well Im standing in as a Guest Designer again this week over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot for Marie and her B Design Team, and this week we want to see you use "3 Designer Papers" and Im sure that it shouldnt to much of a problem for you to create cards with this theme.
But first you will want to know who is sponsoring us yet again this week and that is Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

http://www.thepapershelter.com/ 

But as always this comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card and this can be either a image, paper or printable and even if you dont they will still give you 3 digis of your own choice. I think thats a fabulous prize so you dont loose whichever you decide but I would urge you to pay a visit to The Paper Shelter website and see for yourself what good value they are especially against the pound and you will find them here.
And now for my card.


For my image I have used "Just Me" and you will find her here, and Ive rather cheated this week as I have used a pre-coloured image and then used my oval Nestabilitie Die to cut it out and a heart one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash which has been stamped onto white card then cut out with a banner die which has been stuck across the bottom right hand corner.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of pink card, the papers I have used are from the Sweetshoppe Digi Papers and this set is called "Summer Lovin" and I have used three papers, the first a all over flower pattern in several colours and the second is a pink one and the third a plaid one.
To finish of I have used some of the papers from the same set and then used a Die-namics rolled flower die in different sizes to creat the flowers in the top left hand corner, these were placed on some punched out leaves.
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 Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to give this "3 Designer Papers" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

Oh, this is so pretty and girly. I love this card. The angles of the papers and those beautiful papers cut, are gorgeous. This little image is as sweet as can be and looks wonderful among the flowered paper. The light pink around your image is pretty and a very nice touch. Your rolleld flowers..they are fabulous. I have not yet made flowers. Your iea to mix solid paper with print paper is unique and I need to try this. And, it is not "cheating" to use a pre-colored image...that is what is wonderful about The Paper Shelter images..we get to color OR we get to use their beautifully pre-colored ones! Hugs, Gail
