Happy Birthday Paper Shelter Blog Hop!

 

Hey all!! I hope you are well today! I am so excited today!! I want to welcome you to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop, in celebration of The Paper Shelter's 11th Birthday on the 8th of December!  This will be a two week challenge, with both teams taking part, and it's our way of thanking The Paper Shelter for sharing their wonderful images with us, and sponsoring our challenge.


 
The theme for this special challenge is:

CELEBRATIONS

If you've arrived here from Anet, then you're heading in the right direction!  If not, then you'll want to pop back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, because you don't want to miss out on this one.  Both Design Teams are participating, showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter, 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.
 

Today I am using the ever so cute Upside Down Digital Stamp for my birthday card. She completely reminds me of my daughter so I had to use this stamp for a card for her. I thought it would be perfect for this fantastic theme!
 

 I LOVE the fun playfulness of this stamp! You can't see it very much but I actually printed out two of the images I cut out the little girl from her knees down to her hair, to make her a little more dimensional on the card.

I also thought it was fun that I had a tree die that I could try to make it look as if the branch was being looked at through a telescope of some sort. 


Of course I had to add a fun little sun to go with the scene. The background is a cloud stencil a friend sent to me that I just LOVE. 


Of course I had to put the fun die cut sentiment on the card to complete it, along with some dew drops.

From here, you will need to hop on over to Julie O.  Don't forget to leave your comment for an opportunity to win your choice of one of the fabulous digis available in store!


Good Luck!  Hope you've enjoyed the Hop so far!

Skin: E00, 04, 11, 21, R20, 30, 29, 17, 05

  3. Wow Cristena! Every new detail adds to the WOW factor of this card! I love your layering and extra dimension. Your card must be even more fantastic in person, with all those layers adding to the scene. Your connection to your daughter warms my heart. It always adds a special touch to a card, when you feel a connection to the image, right? Love your sentiment placement! Well, I just love everything!
