Anything Goes at The Paper Shelter!

This week's challenge at The Paper Shelter is "Anything Goes" (so no excuses for not entering ;) ).  TPS have some wonderful digital images & papers & for my card (which was for my MIL's 70th Birthday) I used their gorgeous "Arizona Fantasy" pack which includes images (black & white & colour), tags, papers and more.  I printed the paper on to velum & punched a lace border, I added some Shimmerz paint to the petals (though you can't see it in the photo).  The doily was made using my Cheery Lynn French Pastry die & I finished off with corners, pearls, bow, Glamour Dust & a sentiment.  

As always we have a gift certificate up for grabs for our winner. It's worth $20 and it can be yours if you use a Paper Shelter image on your creation. If you play with another brand you have a chance to win three digi's of your choice :D

The challenges:
Crafty Sentiments - Flowers
The Crazy Challenge - Anything Goes
Sassy Cheryl's - Birthday
A&T Emerald Faeries - Punches & Dies
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Cheery Lynn - Doilies 
Lollipop - Anything Goes

I hope you're all having a great week.  I'm talking to my grandchildren on the webcam while writing this - the best way to start a day off!
