Birthday Blog Hop

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop in celebration of reaching their 5th Birthday on December 8th. It will be a two week Challenge and both Design Teams are taking part.

The Hop is our way of inviting you to join in with us and this one is a  "A Special Birthday" theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!! If you have landed here from Sandra’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 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 Blog.

The card I have made to share with you for this special occasion features the very pretty Autumn Enchantment image.  


My image was printed onto Cryogen White cardstock and coloured with my Copic Markers.
The colours I’ve used are: Skin - E11, E00, E000, R20; Hair - E44, E42, E40; Dress - BG78, BG75, BG72, BG70, YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91; Wings - YR68, YR65, YR61.

Here’s a closer look at the image.


From here you will need to hop on over to Patty-Sue’s blog. 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!

Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far.
