Make a Wish - The Paper Shelter - TPS DT

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new followers. 
What a week this has been, yep me moaning again. On Monday while driving back to work at lunchtime my car decided to die on me. Unfortunately it was just after a bend on a dual carriage way and in the outside lane.  Talk about my life flashing before my eyes !!! I could see the cars behind me swerving all over the road to avoid hitting me and each other, it could have been a really bad pile up. Fortunately we all got away with it. I kept trying to get it to start again and after 20 attempts it was still dead so I got out the number for the rescue service and decided to have one last try before calling.... it started.... phewwwwwwwww.... I drove straight round to the garage which was just around the corner. £303 later and with a new ignition coil I was back on the road.  Definitely not an experience I want to go through again. My other bad news was that they discovered another £586 of other work that needed doing... but as this was main dealer prices I am checking out other garages in the area.
So here I am still alive to tell the tale :)
Onto today's card which is made using the new TPS image 'Make a Wish'. I fell in love with her as soon as I saw her. Our challenge this week is Punches and Dies. I really do appear to be in a turquoise mood atm :)

This is quite a plain card for me... no flowers, but I didn't want to distract to much from the image. She is cut using a SB Fleur de Lis rectangle.  The backing paper is ancient and I added a MS punch down the edge and MS butterflies.  Beaded cord, pears and corners from my stash.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils and I added distress in to the background. Her wings and the butterflies are covered with Diamond Sparkles Fairy Dust. She really does twinkle in real life.

The inside does match the front but with a different MS border added.

I hope you will join in with our challenge this week where of course the prize is $30 to spend in the store if you use a TPS image or 3 digi's of your choice for any other image.

Do pop over and see what the other DT members have created for your inspiration. We do have several new girls on the team this week.

Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings, and to look at my card

ps. I do still have candy up for grabs for another week
