Good Morning Paper Shelter lovers!

We have a new challenge starting today, and the theme is:

I've given in to beauty this week... In my role as designer, I tend to pick older images from our sponsors to work with, for 2 reasons: 1) The newer images get quite a lot of attention, and I don't want to bore you with yet another card using one of them, and 2) The older images are so lovely, I don't want them overlooked.  But then this image popped up, and all my self-imposed rules went out the window!  How stunning is this image!!!

She's called Glittery And Sparkling, and I have coloured her with markers.  I've then cut her out using a Spellbinders die, and used a different Spellbinders die to cut some of the papers.  

My papers and sentiment are from the Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac pack.  It's one of my favourites. If you visit my blog much, you'll know that I lean toward purples, so I really love this paper pack!  Enough to have bought a 2nd one, just in case I run out.  

The starry corner was cut using a Poppy Crafts die.  In case you can't quite tell from the photograph, it's cut from silver mirrored card.  I've added two doilies hand crocheted by my mum.  My flowers are 49 and Market, Little Birdie, Petaloo and KaiserCraft.

Up for grabs this week as always, is a $30 gift voucher if our winning entry has used a Paper Shelter product - it could be a pre-coloured image, black and white digi, or paper, or 3 digis of your choice if you've used another brand.  You can enter the challenge up to 3 times, provided you've used a Paper Shelter product on at least one of them.

Thanks so much for popping in for a look!
