The Paper Shelter - Art Deco Charm

Good morning everyone!  We are starting a new challenge on the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog,  The theme this week is 'Stitching - Faux or Real'. You do not need to use a digi from The Paper Shelter to enter the challenge, but those using an image from The Paper Shelter will be eligible to win a $30 gift certificate.  Any winner not using a Paper Shelter digi will win 3 digis of their choice. 

For my DT project, I decided to make a card using the beautiful new digi Art Deco Charm.  I love how elegant and classy this digi is.  You can find this, along with tons of other amazing images over at PaperShelter.com

The colors I used are: skin - E000, E00, E11, E21, E93 & RV10; hair - E95, E97 & E99; dress - RV93, RV95 & RV99; feathers - B0000, B000 & B00. The image is printed on X-press paper.

Here is a closer look:

Anyone who knows me, will tell you that I am not a sewer, lol! I can sew a button, but that is about it,  And even then, it's nothing I am proud of! Yikes!  Maybe a new hobby one day?  I used Faux stitching on mine.  I love the Stitched Square die by Lawn Fawn.  Looks so much better than any stitching I could ever do. 

 For the card, I also used Bazzill cardstock, paper from my stash, Wild Orchid flowers, ribbon,  and lace. Would you like to play along with our 'Stitching Faux or Real' challenge?  It's really easy...just head on over to the Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to see all of the rules. You can also check out the amazing DT inspiration projects by my fellow DT members.  I do hope you'll join us!  Thank you for taking a look.  Have a fabulous day!  I hope it's a crafty one:)

xx Bonnie
