Challenge #317 - A Card for a Child - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, this weeks theme is all about cards for Children and I'm sure if your anything like me this is one of those cards that you have to create most of the time, I have 10 grandchildren between hubby and I and 3 great grandchildren so you can see there is always a card needed for one of those, though not all are small children now but adults with little ones of their own. So we want to see

A Card for a Child

please and it doesn't matter if its a Birthday, Christmas or even a Christening card the choice is totally up to yourselves.
But firstly you will want to know who our Sponsors are and as always our sponsers are The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website

But as always it comes with the rule that you must have used one of their products on your card or project, this could be a Image, Paper or Printable and even if you don't, they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so it really is a win win situation don't you think.
And for my own choice of images this one was ideal for one of the boys in my family, and believe me we have 8 plus the 3 great grandsons, I do wish we had more little girls but maybe in future we might be lucky.


This little chap is called "Lil Cowboy" and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card and used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used Nestabilitie die to cut him out and then inked him around the edge of the die before removing it out of the die, thats what gives the white edge. I then mounted it onto a fancy diecut also from Nestabilities and this was a brown card. The sentiment is one from my stash and was treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount the same colour brown card and the fancy mount, onto this I have placed the backing paper that comes with the "Lil Cowboy" set and you will find that here. I then placed the mounted image in the center with the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner. To finish off I used some rope and string to create a lasso which was then placed in the top left hand corner and embellishments down the right hand side and one in the bottom left.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I hope that you will then want to take part in our "A Card for a Child" Challenge.

Challenge #206 - Ribbons and Pearls - Pink Gem Designs

Good Morning Gemsters this fortnights Challenge is so pretty for me anyway its all about

Ribbons and Pearls

And without further ado here she is:-


This beautiful girl is "Vintage Rose" and I printed her onto white card and for a change I used my prisma pencils to colour her I felt they were less harsh then pens and gave her a more vintage look, you will find her here.
After I finished colouring her I cut her out with a Nestabilitie oval die and then a fancy one for the mount out of a gold coloured card. The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" and for my first mount I used the same gold coloured card that I used for my mount and then placed one of the "Champagne Lace" papers from Pink Gem Designs and you will find them here.
I wrapped a gold card around one end of my card on the left and placed my mounted image towards the right, I then created a large bow from the same gold ribbon and with a strip of gold organza ribbon tied it together and placed in the center of my wrapped bow as shown in my photo. The sentiment is one I stamped and mounted it with the same gold colour card and tucked it in the middle of my large bow on the left. My last thing was to to stick yellow pearls down the right hand side.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that will pop over to the Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Ribbons and Pearls" Challenge.
