The Paper Shelter: Winter Blues …. My first DT card!!

Morning guys, what an exciting day it is for me – I am thrilled to have my very first card to share with you all for The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog. There are a few other newbies on Team A too so I hope you pop over and give them all a big welcome too.

Our theme this week is Winter Blues. I am glad to say it is finally getting a bit milder here and the last snow melted yesterday. I am sure there will be a few more cold days before Spring arrives though.


I have used this beautiful image called ‘A. Mucha Influence – Winter’  and I think she is so pretty and was a dream to colour with my copics. The sentiment is by Whiff of Joy and I think I have had it forever. I tried something new on this card and I am pleased with how it turned out – I inked up my little flourish stamps with 2 different inks, blue and brown, and stamped them around the edges of the image. I think it helps tie the papers in nicely with the stamp. I will certainly try it again.


I love all the faces on the gorgeous images by The Paper Shelter – they are just so sweet.


To complete my card I have used flowers, lace and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts – just had a delivery of new stash – woop woop, lol.

I am entering my card for the following challenges:
Oldie But A Goodie – Lace (lace, sentiment, flowers, pearls and punch)
Creative Inspirations – Brown, Blue & Cream
Stampin’ For The Weekend – Photo/Colour Combo
Stamptacular Sunday – Pearls and Lace

I hope you get chance to join us this week. Don’t forget about my candy which is on the post below ….. good luck!!!!
