 We have a fun new challenge starting at The Paper Shelter today!  Our theme for the week is:
It couldn't get any easier than that!

I've created a groovy card using Charmingly Hippie.  I wanted to give her an 'updated' look, but keep my card psychedelic and fun.

I've coloured the image with Copics.

I have two different paper packs, perfect for an image with a hippie theme, but I had already coloured her before I pulled them out, and neither looked good with her, so I pulled out one of my oldest paper packs for this one: DCWV Nana's Kids.  The colours were exactly what I was looking for.  

I've added a flower strip and a peace sign from one of my original paper pack choices: Groovy Kit by Ella & Viv.

My giant sentiment is die cut using dies from two different Crafti Potential stamp & die kits.  My flowers are 49 and Market.

I was surprised at how hard it was to put this card together.  The background paper is so bold, it was hard to find flowers that didn't clash too badly, or get lost.   I'm quite happy with the end result though.

Well, up for grabs this week is our usual fantastic prize!  You could win a $30 store voucher if you've used a Paper Shelter product on your entry (black & white digi, pre-coloured image or digital 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.

Have fun!

Thanks for popping in for a look!
