Good morning all my friends in blog land. It is time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter. I know you will all love this one it is "Any Thing Goes"! Those are always the best as you can let your creative juices flow while using one of the lovely Paper Shelter image. I decided to do a bit of 'fussy cutting"....and it turned into a LOT of fussy cutting. Normally I don't leave a white edge, but I felt it helped pop the flowers. This sweet , lovable image is called "The Most Adorable Cavalier". She is so cute you just want to hug her. I also used the "Vintage Floral Frame". It is so lovely and really adds to an image when you frame it. My paper is from an old, old, DCWV paper pack . I colored my image with Copics and Twin Markers. After printing two Vintage Floral Frames, and coloring both I cut the flowers of one out and popped it on top of it's twin. It made the framed picture pop even more. My sentiment is an old yard sale stamp. It looks a bit rough, but it is one of my favorite. I framed it with a Spellbinders die. A sheer pink ribbon finishes off my fun card. I hope you will play along with us this time, you could win a lovely generous prize from The Paper Shelter. Take time to hop to each of the DT's entries they are beautiful and show the diversity of the images at The Paper Shelter. http://www.thepapershelter.com
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
My Song: (One my DH's uncle Bud always sang)
When I was a lad
And old Shep was a pup
Over hills and meadows we'd stray
Just a boy and his dog
We were both full of fun
We grew up together that way

Hi, Patty Sue! Your card is wonderfully colored and shaded, but I especially like the frame and fussy cutting around the focal point! So pretty. The DPs in the background really make your card extra special! hugs, de
