Flower Power Challenge TPS #251

The Paper Shelter Challenge #251 

Hi everyone, It's time for a new challenge over at 

The Paper Shelter 

and this time the challenge theme is  

Flower Power 

So here's my DT make for the Challenge, I thought that because it's 
the 1st of June and the time of Summer Weddings that I would make 
a card for the bride to be. The beautiful Paper Shelter image I've used 
is called "The Bride" and you can find her HERE!!  I've also used one 
of The Paper Shelter's gorgeous digi design papers too and this set of 
papers is called " The Happy Couple" and you can find them 

When I made this card I wanted to make it in a sepia tone, so I printed 
both the beautiful image (I know, I've cheated a bit with this card lol) and 
the design paper in a sepia tone. I then used some oyster coloured from 
Hunkydory and a Joy Craft Anja Die and Die  Namics Pierced Circle die 
to frame the card and image.

The beautiful blooms are mostly from Petal-Lu with the exception of 
the rose and rosebuds which are from WOC. 

And last but not least is the Oyster coloured silk ribbon, hand tied bow 
and the Ivory pearls, oh and not forgetting some NUVO glitter drops 
which were added to the blooms and around the image.

For more details about the challenge be sure to pop over to 
where as always there's the chance to win a gift voucher worth $30 for 
those playing along with "The Paper Shelter" brand.

 Playing along with 
another brand gives you the chance of winning 3 digi's of your choice.
