The Paper Shelter DT call

I was sooo excited today when I saw that The Paper Shelter were having a Design Team Call...I wanted to leave work (but couldn't) to get an entry in!

So I am finally home and ditched my responsibilities to get my application in.

(Added  17/9/14)

Now this is were I tell you I made a second card for the call as I started getting a little nervous about my first one....as I really want to be part of the team.

So here is my final submission using The Paper Shelter's 'Patissier In Distress'

  And as I didn't have the heart to take this down completly this was my original submission

I have used a digital image from MilkCoffee called 'Girl with a Rose Hair Clip' digital image; now I just have to leave it up to the powers that be to see if I make the grade.


Wish me luck as I soooo want to be part of this team.
