Gypsy Dance - The Paper Shelter DT

Good morning everyone and welcome to my new follower Sarah who makes beautiful cards. I usually work a half day on Wednesday but today I have the full day off :), working Friday morning to make up for it, but a couple of days of chilling is just what I need.
Today sees the start of a new challenge at The Paper Shelter where our theme this week is 'Music Maestro!'.  I decided to use one of the older images 'Gypsy Dance' that I have wanted to colour up for a while.

She is cut with a Marianne die. I added a memory box musical notes and some wooden shapes I won a few weeks ago from Crafty Embellies which I have covered in Frantage. The flowers are all from WOC and the ribbon and DP are from my stash.

She is of course coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils. I added distress ink to her background and around the edged of the DP.

The inside does reflect the front

As usual our generous prize from Veronica and Pedro is a Voucher for $30 of images if you use a Paper Shelter image or 3 Digi's of your choice if you use any other image.

Thanks for taking the time to look
