My Paper Shelter Card

Monday I told you about The Paper Shelter and how I won a challenge they sponsored.  They have darling digis, plain & pre-colored.  Here is my card I was working on then.

 Here are the 2 components I printed and cut out from the file I got from TPS.
I didn't notice until I had cut it out that there are snowflakes on the background so I had to do something so my card could be a birthday card.  Flowers fix everything so I got out my favorite Cricut cartridge for making flowers for cards, Mother's Day Bouquet.  I cut out the different elements I wanted to use in the flowers.
 The leaves & center flower part are cut from vellum.  I found some vellum at Michael's for $.25 for a 12X12 sheet.  I glued these pieces together & put them on the card.  I think if I did it over, I would make the flowers a bit smaller.  To my eye, they over power the little girl.  I still like the card though.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Max has become my crafting mascot.  He has taken to sitting on my lap while I craft.  I have a hard time creating with my arms wrapped around him.  I'm not sure his motive is to just sit on my lap.  I think it might be because he can see outside better from that vantage point.  Oh well, what can I say, he's a spoiled little doggie.  God Bless You!!! Peggy.
