It's a Celebration

Over at the Paper Shelter today we are celebrating our 200th challenge, and our theme for this momentous occasion is
There are great prizes up for grabs! If you are our randomly selected winner and play with a TPS image then you have a chance of winning a $30 gift certificate, any other image and you will win three digis of your choice.

Here's my card
Digital Stamp - So Pretty - The Paper Shelter
Papers and butterfly- Summer Breeze - Just So Scrappy
Ribbon, handbag charm and black gems - Meiflower.

I made the gem swirls by cutting a piece of scrap card to the size of the area I wanted the swirl to go, I  drew a swirl onto the card with a pencil and used my pricking tool to punch holes through the swirl design at regular intervals. I then used this as a template, placing it onto the card and drawing a dot through each of the holes with a propelling pencil, I removed the card and stuck a gem to each dot and et voila! I had my swirls.

Make sure you pop over to the Paper Shelter challenge blog and check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of my teamies, and don't forget to enter the Celebration challenge.

Thanks for stopping by,
Colette xx

Hi Colette, this is one of my favourite paper shelter images (it reminds me of a photo of my mum when she was younger - but with black hair of course!) This is a beautifully designed card, every little detail is perfect. And I love the colour combo.
Wishing you well (well, better anyway :*) Karen xx
