Hello and a big thank you for visiting me here today! Over at The Paper Shelter Challenge there is a new challenge starting with the theme "Halloween."  I have made a shadow box card.

I have used Zelina which is available here. I coloured her with my Copics and Prismas. One of my Copics was new and leaked at the top right and a really big blob on the lower left, hence the cobweb! I used Fancypants Oct 31 papers. EK punch along with La La Land Cobweb Corner Die, Spellbinders Label Die (??which number), Lawn Fawn Stitched Scallop Borders and the bottle with micro beads and spider are from my stash. I got the free printable labels  here - thank you!

As usual Veronica is offering the lucky winner a fabulous prize:

Thank you so much for looking and have a great day!

The Paper Shelter Challenge

Hello there and a big welcome.  There is a new challenge started at The Paper Shelter Challenge and the theme this week is "A Card With Many Folds." So we would like to see any style of card using any different kind of fold than the classic one.

Here is my card:

I used Enchantress which is available here. I had to use the pre-coloured version as I was happily colouring away with my Copics and picked up my new N3 which promptly leaked over the image and there was nothing I could do about it try as I could, I simply didn't have enough time to start colouring again!

I half cut the Spellbinders Fancy Oval out of the card then folded it back to create the design.  There are lots of tutorials on the Internet how to do this and it is quite simple.  The other dies are Sue Wilson and Crea-nest-lies for the sentiment.  The papers are First Edition and the little heart pearls are from the Hobby House.

A side view:

As usual, there is a fabulous prize on offer for the lucky winner:

Please pop over to the Challenge and have a look at the rest of the designs from the Design Team and we would love to see you enter!

Thanks for looking!
