"Girl On A Swing"








First I have to tell you I had a terrible time trying to photograph this card...it is so much prettier IRL! LOL! Aren't they always? My paper has foil flowers and foil leaves, they are so pretty but they just do not show up in the photo! This is my first card for "The Paper Shelter" DT "A". Our challenge this week is " Glitz and Glimmer".  I knew when I saw this lovely image that I would have to use it for my first card. She is called "Spring Thing II". I love her cute little leaf swing. My DP I have had for a long time. I have been waiting for just the right card to use it on. I colored the image with Copics and added a Spica pen to the center of the flowers for a bit more sparkle. I used an olive leaf die for my branches, a MS punch for the lace on the image and a Dienamics die for the scallop edge. A few pearls and a rhinestone heart finish off my card. I hope you will hop over to http://thepapershelter.blogspot.com/ and join the fun this week!
I am entering  this card at the following challenges:
My Song: Gerry and The Pacemakers
I stand out of sight
And watch as the light from the sun
Shines through her hair
From yonder she came
I don't know her name
Still I love that girl on a swing
