Good Morning fellow crafters!

This week at The Paper Shelter, we'd like to see a 

I have a long list of outstanding birthday cards on my desk, and they're ALL for men!  So this week I decided to tick one of them off my list, using this wonderful image called Camariere!

I have coloured the image with markers, using a white gel pen to create the glittery lapels of the waistcoat.  I've used a Poppy Crafts stitched edge die to cut out the image, and another from the same set for the paper behind the image.

My papers are from the DCWV White Ginger Stack.  I've tied two strips of hemp cord around the top and tied it off with a bow.

The two sentiments were made using Spellbinders oval dies, and the Happy Birthday using a Find It Trading die.  I've added a few Carta Bella enamel dots to the sentiment ovals.

I've finished off with two Express Yourself MIP beer glass stickers.

 One male card done!!

We have our usual fabulous prize up for grabs this week!  You can win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your Birthday Creation, (the black & white digi, pre-coloured image 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.

I look forward to seeing what you're creating this week!

Thanks for stopping by!
