Happy Birthday Hop

Good morning to you all and I have some exciting news today!  On December 8th The Paper Shelter will be three years old!! Whoo hoooooooo! To celebrate this big event we are having a hop over at The Paper Shelter Challenge!


We are having a "Special Birthday" theme for our challenge which will last two weeks and both teams will be participating.  Each member of the Design Team will award one commentator a Paper Shelter digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which will be found at The Paper Shelter Challenge. You should have arrived here from the lovely Lydia's blog if not please head back to The Paper Shelter Challenge to see the full list and join in the fun.

Here is my card:


I went for a criss cross card as its for a Special occasion!  I used the scrummy A Curious Cake which is available here from The Paper Shelter.  I had lots of fun colouring it in with my Copics, Stickles and Glossy Accents.  The papers are Wild Rose Studio "Candy Floss."  I cut and matted the image with Spellbinders Grand Nesties.  Martha Stewart punch for the borders and Lil' Inker die for the bow.  The roses are made using Cheery Lynn medium and large Rose dies and SB Rose Creations the leaf sprays were made with a punch.  I made the sentiment on my pc.  Here is a compilation:


Hope you like it I had so much fun doing this and The Paper Shelter images are brilliant to colour in but if you don't have time or don't like colouring you always get a coloured image as well!

Right back to the HOP - from here you need to be heading out to luscious Lorraine's blog as she is next on the list.  Don't forget to leave a comment on all the blogs that way you will have more chances of winning!  The hop will stay open until the 17th December and the winners announced shortly after.  Thank you so much for looking, take care xx
