Happy 1st Birthday to The Paper Shelter!!!

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 1st Birthday!!!  If you have landed here from Debs 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 begin 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.

My card uses the pre-colored image "Balloon Ride" which I merged with paper and the sweet treats image from the Pattiserie accessorises set.  I printed out the Balloon Ride image twice, then fussy cut one of the images and popped it up over the original.  On the balloon and sweet treats I used Diamond Glaze and Viva Decors Brown Pearl Pen to add dimension to the fruit and chocolate chips and icing ( see below ).


From here you will need to hop on over to Tracey M's blog, or if you just stumbled across my blog, or gotten lost along the way, go back to the start of the list of design team members participating in the hop at The Paper Shelter Challenge 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 we hope you're enjoying all of the wonderful inspirations from the Design Team.
