The Paper Shelter Christmas Three Week Challenge - Anything Goes

I used the Christmas Candy Fairy stamp and coloured her with Copics and Stickles and glitter gel pens. I cut her out on a Spellbinders die and inked the edged with distress ink then sewed it onto fabric. I painted a brown wreath white and framed my image with the wreath.  My papers from from the Dovecraft "Tis the Season" paper pack. I used Alchemy Metallique to paint the lasercut birdhouse and Christmas bells. I added a variety of flowers and beaded swirls.

Good Morning fellow crafters, and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop! Our blog hop is in celebration of The Paper Shelter reaching their 7th birthday on the 8th of December! This will be a two week challenge, and both Design Teams will be taking part.

The Hop is our way of inviting you to share in the celebrations with us, so our theme for this one is BIRTHDAY/CELEBRATIONS.

If you have hopped here from Bettina'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, so that you don't miss anyone out.  Our Design Teams have worked very hard and are showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter and each blog on the hop is offering one lucky visitor, from those who leave a comment, a digi of their choice, as well as the main prize, details of which are on the main Paper Shelter Challenge Blog.

I used a pre-printed digi stamp on my card called Fun and Sun. My papers are from the Prima Annalee paper stack. I used some white and gold lace and ribbon and a Martha Stewart border punch which I distressed using Tea Dye ink. The sentiment is from LOTV.
 I added a variety of flowers, some lovely shells and gem hearts.

From here you'll need to hop on over to Vannessa's blog.  Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance to win your choice from all the fab digis available in the store! Hope you're having fun!

Hop!  Hop!  Hop!
