Challenge #291 - Birthday Card - The Paper Shelter Challenge

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, todays theme over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog is for a "Birthday Card" and as you know its probably the one thing that originally bought us all to creating cards I know it was for me so Im sure it will be a easy theme for you all to follow and we always look forward to seeing your projects.
As always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website


But as always it comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and even if you dont they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so it really is a win win situation dont you think.
And now to show you the Card I created for this Challenge.


This little man is called "Casual Boy" and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card then coloured him with my copic pens, afterwards I used a rectangle die to cut him out, then used a larger one and black card for the mount.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of black card and the paper I have used is also from the same image set "Casual Boy" and you will find it here, and then on top I placed my mounted image towards the left, I cut out the leave scrolls and laid them down the right hand side
and then on top I placed my sentiment which was typed on my computer and printed and placed on another piece of black card to mount it.
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 to will want to take part in this "Birthday Card" Challenge.

And now for the big reveal I hope you like the results


This little lady is called "Snowborder Girl" and you will find her here, I printed her onto white card and then coloured her with my copic pens, afterwards I cut her out completely ready to stick her to the background and slightly raised it with mounting foam to give it more depth.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card, the paper as I said is also from "Snowborder Girl" and came separately to the image so I printed it onto paper and stuck it to the blue mount and used glitter on the snow to give it a bit of sparkle.
I also stamped a greeting in the top right hand corner, as you can see I sent it as a Xmas Card so I hope wont condemn me for using it for my first card of the year.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the girls have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Shades of Blue" Challenge.
