Use A Doily at The Paper Shelter

Good morning all it's time for another fantastic challenge at The Paper Shelter.

As always you don't have to use a Paper Shelter image to enter but if you do you have a chance to win 
$ 30 voucher to spend in the Paper Shelter Shop.
If you win using another image then you still get to choose 3 images from the shop.

Today for my card I am using a new image called Most Adorable Racoons - and they certainly are!

I got a bit carried away with the embellishments on this one so you can only just see the Cheery Lynn doily on the right hand side.

The beautiful papers are  from the Distinguished Paper Pack also from Paper Shelter here. They are so lush!
The rose leaves were cut on my Silhouette cameo using vintage music paper.
The sentiment is stamped using bundled sage distress ink and the papers are edged in this.
The edging was made using a Martha Stewart border die - inked with bundled sage and cut into individual segments to go round the circle to create another doily effect.
The cute little racoons were coloured with Promarkers.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges......

I hope you enjoy this challenge as much as I did with little cuties like this to work with - who wouldn't?

Have a great day,
