Challenge #145 - "Be My Valentine" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, yes its me again its actually my week for hosting the Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot with my A Team, and this week because its so close to Valentines Day I thought it was the right theme for this week so I want to see all your cards with "Be My Valentine" designs on them. As always ours sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

 

And of course this means you must have used one of their products on your card, that could be a image, paper or printable, but even if you dont and you are picked by random org you will still win 3 digi images of your own choice, and if you would like to pay a visit to their website The Paper Shelter you will find it here.
And now to show you my card.


For my image I have used this "Love Bubbles" image and your will find it here, I have printed it onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Heart die to cut it out and a scalloped one for the mount. The sentiment is one from my stash which has also been cut out with a smaller heart die and also mounted onto a scalloped edge mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of white pearlescent card, the paper is from the Sweetshoppes digi "All Wet" paper set, its a blue background with bubbles on, and then down the middle i have used a strip of the same card and put it through a heart embossing folder and then placed it down the center of my card.
On top of this I have placed my mounted image and then put the sentiment down in the right hand corner, to finish of I have used the Memory Box bubble die to cut out the bubbles that are then placed in the top right hand corner away from the surprised fish.
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 will want to join us and take part in this "Be My Valentine" Challenge.
Brenda of Floral Fantasies has a wonderful Blog Candy offer over on her blog you will find the link here, and my favourite item of use for my cards are Dies. You will also see a link on my sidebar.

First, let me say that I'm not kissing up to you. I'm writing comments to cards and your card deserves this comment. This is gorgeous. First of all, it is an adorable image colored wonderfully.I would have NEVER thought that 2 goldfish could be so cute in my life. I love the heart and how you cut outside of it. The diecut bubbles are darn awesome...I love these! GREAT paper, wonderful embossed background and what a great sentiment!!!! These goldfish against all the blue and white papers are the center of attention. Absolutely gorgeous and now I need to go and buy the goldfish digital stamp. This is one of my most favorite cards! Hugs, Gail
