It’s time for a new challenge at The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and this time the challenge is…..

If you use a TPS image in your creation you will receive the full $30 to spend on their gorgeous designs, and if you haven’t used a TPS image then you will win 3 Digis of your choice from their site.

For my card today I have used the very cute 'Faery Emma'. 

I have printed the image onto X-Press It Blending card, coloured with Copic Markers and then fussy cut. 

The colours I have used are: Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E57, E55, E53, E51; Clothes, Wings, Hat, Socks and Arm Sleeves - R85, R83, R81, YG67, YG63, YG61, Y28, Y26, Y23, Y21, G46, G43, G41, YR68, YR65, YR61.

I've used some pretty papers from the 'Summer Breeze' 6 1/2" Paper Pad by Kaisercraft. Teamed this with some Wild Wasabi Seam Binding, a Vintage Brad and a few pearls to complete my card. 

Here’s a close up of the image.
