Cirque - The Paper Shelter

Finally I appear again. Sorry for being MIA for the past week I just needed to take some time away. My apologies for not commenting on the wonderful cards you have created in the past week I will try to catch up later today, but don't think I will make up for a week of non-comments.
The great thing about being on a DT is that you have to meet the commitments you make and this card has done that.

This is for our latest challenge #80 'Tag you're it' (Use a tag somewhere on your card). The prize has been increased for anyone using a TPS image to $30 to spend on the site.But dont forget even if you dont used one of their products (now why wouldnt you?) you will still stand a chance of winning 3 of their images of your own choice. Please dont forget if you enter more than one card, you must use one of The Paper Shelter images on at least one of the three cards you are allowed to enter.

This is another gorgeous image from Veronica and Pedro, and oooooo I am dying to use their latest release 'Adorable Little Devil' which is perfect for Halloween cards.

So to today's card which is Cirque.

Now this really is something new for me...... alternate hair colour :-)......  I also used my new Marianne die that I bought a couple of weeks ago. No flowers this time but I did add quite a few gems to give it a little more sparkle. The papers I used are from a Lucy Cromwell Papermania stack and Bazzill basics. The tag is computer generated and the ribbon in from my stash.

She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma Pencils.

The inside reflects the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-
