Anything goes at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all

Its a late post from me this morning - and the reason being ....Christmas - what else - I've totally lost track of just about everything including what day I post for my challenges!  I'm sure this Christmas thing causes temporary insanity - well I hope it's temporary or there's no hope for any of us really lol.

Today's challenge over at
 The Paper Shelter Challenge blog
 is the last one for this year 
and the theme is an easy peasy....

Anything Goes

I used one of the very newest stamps that was just released
and I just fell in love with this pretty image and the absolutely gorgeous papers that come with her

This is The Music Practice and is available here

I loved the papers just as much as the pretty image and even thought about making a card using just the papers - it would make a very pretty card with just a sentiment mounted on the centre frame - but I just didn't have the heart to leave this pretty girl out!  I printed the paper out twice on paper for the inside and outside of the card then cropped the centre frame part and printed it onto card so that I could add dimension.  It was then curved and elevated at the centre with foam pads.  Lastly I fussy cut the image and stuck her onto the frame, the butterflies and flower embellishments were added - because she deserved to be pretty!  It's quite  a while since I made a card with flowers and "fussy" embellies, I definitely favour a more CAS style these days, but some images suit this style so well and I thought that this was definitely one of them.  I just love the effect of this paper - the doily looks so dimensional - but its all printed onto the one piece of paper

Hope we see you at The Paper Shelter Challenge
- as always there's a great prize up for grabs
