I Won - The Paper Shelter DT

Good morning everyone and welcome to my 3 new followers, so happy and honored that you decided to join.
My apologies to everyone for being missing in action but I have not been on best form.  Headaches most days, I think due to the change in medication. Thankfully I am back at the doctor's on Thursday and hope I will get it sorted out. No energy and no mojo here.
Enough of my moaning, today sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter, and one I am sure everyone will love as it's 'Anything goes'.
I used an image that came out a couple of weeks ago called 'I Won', very appropriate for this time of year with the BAFTA's and Oscar's.

Isn't she just a star !  She is cut using SB Timeless Rectangle. The Rennie Macintosh rose is one I bought from ebay about 2 years ago and turned up when I was searching for something else. Its cut from shiny black card and looks like black lacquer. I also used this for the leaves and mount. Flowers from WOC and black pearls and backing paper from my stash.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and Prisma pencils. I also added glitter to the statue,handbag and her earrings. 

The inside does match the front, and this also shows the diamond stickles on the roses.

I do hope you will join in with this weeks challenge where the amazing Veronica and Pedro are again offering $30 of products if you use a TPS image, or 3 images of your choice for any others.

Dont' forget to pop over to see the wonderful cards the other DT girls have made for your inspiration.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thanks for taking the time to look, and hopefully I will make it around your blogs this week
