Come fly with me!

Well - here it is my first challenge post as a design team member over at The Paper Shelter, I'm sooooo excited to be part of the DT and be lucky enough to play with the fabulous images on offer in the store.

The challenge this week is
and we would love it if you would play along with us.

If you win the challenge using a TPS image then you will win a $30 gift certificate for the store, if you win using any other image then you will win your choice of 3 digi's from the store and as there are so many beautiful images to choose from it's a win/win situation whichever way you look at it.

I actually have two cards to show you using the same image, the first one is a stepper card made from acetate, I wanted my Giraffe in his little airplane to look like he was flying above the clouds pulling his happy birthday banner behind him.

Image - Funny Giraffes - The Paper Shelter
Clouds and tag - two by two digital scrap kit - Just so Scrappy
240 Micron Acetate
Orange cord and buttons - Meiflower

I wasn't very happy with the clouds, they weren't very fluffy, so I decided to make a regular card as well - I used one of the clouds from the image, re-sized to make it bigger and coloured it in to look (I hope) fluffier.

The papers, sun and tag came from the same kit as above and I used a few dies for the extras.
Die-namics - Simply Scallops Medium ( thought they could represent little hills in the distance LOL!)
Die-versions - Little Lizzie Font
Joy Crafts - 6003/0028 Flags

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of my teamies.

I am entering my card into the following challenges
Fan-Tastic Tuesday -Must Be Square #29 Use A Patterned Paper
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door  - Always Anything Goes
2 Cute Ink Challenge - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything but Square

Thanks for dropping in,
Colette xx
