The Paper Shelter - "Anything Goes" - Summer Break Challenge

This weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is our special Summer Break one and the theme will be "Anything Goes" it also means that both the A and B Teams will be taking part and as its our time to take a break we will not be commenting on your cards, as I feel the girls need some time out to spend with their children without the worry of commenting on cards. I also have my grandsons coming for a week and its going to be difficult getting to a computer as they sleep in my craft room.
Anyway as always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize for this Challenge of $30. to spend on their website.

But this is providing you have used one of their products on your card and this could be either a Image, Paper and Printable and you will find them here on The Paper Shelter Website. But even if you dont use one you will still receive 3 digi images of your own choice to play with.
And now for my card.


And for my card I have used "Fairy in a Teacup" and you will find her here, and I have printed her onto white card and then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Circle die to cut it out and a fancy one for the mount out of yellow card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and the first mount of yellow card and the papers are from The Paper Shelters "Vintage Flourishes" digi paper set and you will find them here. I have used two of the papers the first one is a very pretty all over rose pattern then on top is another yellow paper and then a Butterfly Border and Corner punch from Martha Stewart and created a layer which was then placed on top of the first mount.
I have then cut a teapot and cup with a Tattered Lace die then stuck it along the bottom of my card, then in the center I have placed my mounted image in the middle, and a sentiment was created on my computer and printed and mounted onto another piece of yellow card. The final flourish is the large Flower that was created with another of the Tattered Lace Dies and layered up and placed in the top left hand corner.
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 Teams have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
