The Paper Shelter Challenge :)

I was so pleased & excited to be chosen to be on The Paper Shelter DT as their digital images & papers are gorgeous & this is my first creation for their challenge blog.  This week the theme is "Sitching" (faux or real).  I don't use my sewing machine enough so it was nice to have an excuse to use it :) The image I used is called "Beauty Treatment" & I coloured her with ProMarkers (all the images come in coloured too which is fab if you haven't got a lot of time), the stamped beauty products & sentiment are from Elzybells & I finished the card off with flowers, punched butterfly & some gems.  Ooh I nearly forgot to say I decorated the inside of the card too (I'm love doing this at the moment, when I have enough time lol).

This is the inside
You don't need to use a Paper Shelter image to enter the challenge but if you do & you win you get a $15.00 gift certificate to spend in The Paper Shelter shop but if you don't use one of their images you could still win your choice of one of their fabulous digital images.  So everyone can join in the fun!
