"Its a Celebration" Challenge and Blog Hop

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop. Our hop is a very exciting one for all of us as it is in celebration of our 1st Birthday!!!! You should have landed here directly from The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot  so you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back there to read all about the "Celebration Challenge" the fabulous main prize on offer and to start the Blog Hop again, as you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Teams have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter Website and on each blog on the hop we are offering one lucky commenter a digi of their own choice.


For my Card in this "Its a Celebration" Challenge and Blog Hop I have used this "Happy Birthday to Me" image and you will find it here,  I have used my copics and tria pens to colour it, then used Nestabilitie Label Die No.23 to cut it out, afterwards I used the die again to draw around to create the mount for it out of deep pink card. The sentiment is one of the Stampin Up Stamps and I treated it in the same was as my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of deep pink card and then on top I have used one of three "Birthday Cupcake" digi papers and you will find them here, the first one is a very pretty pink patterned paper, and on top I have used a pink paper and along both sides I have used a Martha Stewart parcel border punch along both edges, then for my third paper which has been mounted on more of the pink card Ive used a pink background with a swirl pattern on it.
The mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have used some of the left over paper and created three rolled flowers cut with the Dia-namics die and have stuck them to my in the top right hand corner on some punched out leaves.

From here you will need to hop on over to Caroline. Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digis available in store.

Hop! Hop! Hop!

You can take part in the Challenge without taking part in the Blog Hop if you would prefer not to.

Good luck and I hope that you enjoy your journey.
