2nd Birthday Blog Hop and "Two of Anything" Challenge


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 2nd Birthday!!!! You should have landed here directly from The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and you'll not want to miss out on this one! Our Design Team have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter Website and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commenter a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on  The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.



For my card I have used this beautiful "Warm in Winter" image (last years image) from The Paper Shelter and you will find it here, I have printed her onto white card then used my square Nestabilitie Die to cut her out, I then used a Marvellous Square for her mount. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been stamped and cut out as a tag and I have threaded some red ribbon through the hole.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, and the papers I have used are also from The Paper Shelter and they are called "Christmas Spirit" and you will find them here. The first paper is a red one with a clouded pattern on, the second I have cut in a square is a dark yellow paper and I have used a snowflake corner and border punch on it then layered it up on top of the first mount.
I then wrapped a wide poinsettia ribbon around the card on the left hand side, and placed my mounted image towards the top, the sentiment was place in the top right hand corner, and to finish of I have used the Memory Box Poinsettia die and punched out two flowers, and moulded them and layered them up and stuck them to the bottom right hand corner on top of silicone glue and punched out holly leaves.
And now you've seen my card you will need to hop on over to Marcea's blog. Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digi's available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!
Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far.
