LIFE'S A CHARM!

Well, here I am with my second project for THE PAPER SHELTER, although 'officially' my first lol, as my place on the DT team was supposed to start today.  It's week #132 and the challenge is to use a charm on your project.  I used one of the newer release digi stamps called 'Autumn Leaves', isn't she just adorable? You can pop over and buy her HERE.


My papers are all from the 'Summers End'  pad by Fancy Pants.  I used orange cardstock for the matting and the borders.  The top border was done with a Martha Stewart edge punch and the bottom one with an EK Success edge punch. The brown leaves were done with one of my newer die acquisitions, and it's Joanna Sheen's  Ivy Flourish.  It is a one piece die but I cut it apart.  A strip of ribbon, pearls and the all important metal charm finished it off. Oh yeah, she's coloured with a combination of Tria's and ProMarkers.

There's a great prize on offer too.  If you use a Paper Shelter image you can win a $30 spend in store but you can still win 3 images of your choice from The Paper Shelter even if you use any other image.
