Spring Swing II - The Paper Shelter - TPS DT

Good morning and welcome to my new follower Inger, so glad you decided to follow my blog.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at The Paper Shelter where our theme this week is 'Swirly, Girlie', a card with at least one swirl on it.  I decided to use Spring Swing II as it is such a girlie image.

She is cut with SB labels 28 with a faux nestie behind her. The corner stamps are from an art deco set I got ages ago but it has no label on it. I stamped directly onto the Nitwit paper and then added a little colour to the flowers. The swirly leaves are a MB die and the flowers are from WOC.  I added glossy accents to the leaf she is sitting on and lots of viva decor pen.  The edges of the DP are edged with distress ink, and the mounts are cordinations.

She is coloured with Promarkers, Flexmarkers, Triamarkers and a little Prisma Pencil.

The inside does reflect the front.

Our prize this week as always is a $30 voucher if you use a TPS image, or 3 digi's for any other image.  The team B girls have really excelled themselves this week with some beautiful cards for your inspiration.  I hope you take the time to enter our challenge.

Thanks for taking the time to look
