Paper Shelter Birthday Blog Hop

Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop
This is in celebration of their reaching their 3rd 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  "Special Birthday" theme, which I know is extremely popular!!!!

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 Blogspot.

Here is my card which as you can see was for my sister in law’s birthday.
This gorgeous image is called ‘The Enchanted Apple’

The image is coloured with Promarkers.
The papers are from the Nit-Wit collection Autumn Enchantment and Katie Pertiet's digital paper kit Simple Harvest Paper.

The jute string is from my stash.
The flowers are by Kort&Godt 
The mini pine cones are from ebay bought two years ago!
