This is providing you have used one of their products on your card. You could use an Image, Paper or Printable and you will find lots to choose from on their website. Even if you don’t use Paper Shelter products they will still offer you 3 images of your own choice, so you really cannot loose can you?

Did you notice the sweet little beaded umbrella charm? I just love this and was lucky enough to receive it in a Christmas parcel from a wonderful friend, how beautifully does it fit with my image! I think I will have to keep this card for someone very special.

I first painted each of the wood and chipboard pieces with 2 coats of white paint, then glued each piece together and when dry gave another coat of paint. As you can see from the finished product I did leave a few spot here and there a bit under done with the painting to give a more vintage feel.
