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.

http://www.thepapershelter.com/ 

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:-

A Card for the Aurora Wings "No Lines Challenge"

Good Morning fellow Crafters, it looks like another beautiful day again the sun is out and its still quite warm, our dog loves the early morning sunshine and here she is sitting by the back gate taking in the rays.
Mind you she always runs in to welcome me when I come down in the morning then runs outside yet again to enjoy it.
Todays card has been created with such a lot of difficulty I tried twice with the Fushia Sprite but the dark colours were difficult to lay without the lines they kept going over the edge and looked awful so in the bin they went, and I thought I would try something a little lighter and this "Dandelion" Sprite is the result.
I took her into My Craft Studio and faded out the lines printed it and coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die Labels No.34 to cut it out and a Fancy one for the mount from the same Die shape our of green card.
The card is a 6.50"x 6.50" and the first mount is green card, the paper I created myself with Phil Martins "Dandelion Whispers" background stamp by using clear inkpad and details embossing powder and used the heat gun to set it, afterwards I used yellow mica powder and rubbed it all over the embossed background and rubbed of the excess.
I then stuck it to the base mount and cut a 5" square green card and with a Dandelion Embossing Folder from Crafters Companion Embossalicious range and ran it through my ebosser. I then placed this onto of the first layer and wrapped a piece of green net ribbon around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount. I then placed my mounted image in the center of the middle mount.
To finish of I diecut three Dandelions with the Tattered Lace Die and placed them around the mounted image in the center.
