God Bless You



Good morning! Are you ready for fun new challenge at THE PAPER SHELTER?  Both A and B team are joining together for this Anything Goes challenge! I chose one of my favorite new original images. "Keeper Of My Enchanted Forest". I think she is just lovely and has the sweet signature  face that The Paper Shelter is famous for. She is colored with Copics and a little Spica pen added for sparkle. My sweet friend Amanda at Cards, Cats and Copics sent me this lovely Memory Box die for my birthday. I can tell it will be a favorite that I will use over and over. I added some tiny pine cones that my husband I picked up on the Oregon coast.. I just clipped the back of each cone to make it lay flat and glued it to my card. The sentiment is from SU. I hope you enjoy this fun card and will join our Anything Goes party. 
I am entering this card at the following challenge:
My Song: (Rue's Song from The Hunger Games)
Deep in the meadow, under the willow
A bed of grass, a soft green pillow
Lay down your head, and close your sleepy eyes
And when again they open, the sun will rise.
Here it's safe, here it's warm
Here the daisies guard you from every harm
Here your dreams are sweet and tomorrow brings them true
Here is the place where I love you.

Another fabulous card Patty.
Your colouring is perfect, the first thing I noticed was the hair, with the depth and movement!
Love your new die which goes so beautifully with your little pine cones.

Big hugs
