The Paper Shelter - Blog Hop

Hello everyone,

First, let me wish 'The Paper Shelter' a happy happy 8th birthday on 8th of December. 

The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a  "BIRTHDAY/ CELEBRATIONS" theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!! If you have landed here from (previous person's blog) then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start 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 each blog on the hop is offering one lucky commentor a digi of their choice as well as the main prize, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.

My card for our blog hop is here.. 

I have made a card using TPS image 'Fa-la-la-la-la-la---' image. Its a super cute fun image where we have 3 children image that sing a Christmas carol. But I changed this and made it into a birthday card, where they sing happy birthday. I want this post to show that any stamp/digital images can be used anyway we want. 

How I made this cute card:

I coloured and trimmed down the image. I took a card stock and stenciled the background using dye inks from Altenew and added some shimmer to the background. I added a circle glitter foam on the center of the stenciled background and I wanted to add something like a lace. So I die cut 2 border lace and added them to the card. To finish the card, I added some gem stones and a sentiment 'Lets Celebrate You' (didn't want the usual birthday sentiment, hence changed it). 

It looks like these children are singing and wishing happy birthday. 

Now to our blog hop:
From here you will need to hop on over to (AUDREY). 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!

Happy Crafting
