Anything goes challenge at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all

Hope this (Spring??) morning finds you well.  So sorry I haven't been around much lately and I still haven't caught up on my visiting.  I've tried to keep on top of my DT work and have just about made it by the skin of my teeth!!  but I  don't have a lot of time for anything else - life's going through one of those busy/manic/disaster! phases at the minute- but I'm hoping things might improve this coming week!

Anyway enough of my grovelling lol- and back to the matter in hand which is the Paper Shelter Challenge - and this week its the easiest of them all - 

Anything goes

I chose this really cut little 1920's girl - she was new at The Paper Shelter last month - I just love her

In the 20's set- available here

The image and the background comes in the set and I decided to use them both - just to show how you can ring the changes with these sets.   The sets with the ready made background papers make for a really quick card that looks great but  I printed off two of the paper so that I could cut out the oval and layer it up mounted onto card and foam pads to give some dimension and also thread a ribbon through behind the oval.  The paper also comes with fancy corners ready printed - which look really great - but again I've added my own metal corners over to add more depth to the card.  The only other additions are some gems and a couple of sentiment tags, finally I coloured my image with copics and rismacolour pencils and cutit out and  and mounted it onto foam pads - simples! 

I'm really rather pleased with the effect of this card. it looks as if there are lots of layers, and it was so easy to make - there are some fabulous cards on the Paper shelter challenge blog this week - you really must have a look and join in our "anything goes".
