The Paper Shelter - Christmas Challenge - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Crafters, wow the Blog Hop really went down well and Im delighted to say the winner of my free image is:-

Well done Julie to claim your prize you will need to visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot to discover how to contact The Paper Shelter to receive it.
And now we have a very popular theme for this Christmas Challenge and that is "Anything Goes" and because its so close to Christmas we have decided that we shall be taking a break for 3 weeks and that we wont be commenting on the entries, as you probably know its a very popular theme and I know the Design Teams want to spend the holiday period with their families so I hope you will forgive us this time for not doing so.
Anyway this Christmas Challenge as always we are being sponsored by Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30.

As always this comes with the usual rule that you must have used one of their products on your card and this could be a image, paper or printable, but even if you dont the will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice, so you really cant loose can you, you will find all their gorgeous images here at The Paper Shelter website and they have lots of discounts at the moment on their Christmas images.
And now for my Card:-

For my card I have used this very appropriate image and its called "The Turkey is Ready" and you will find it here, I have also used the backing paper that comes with the image. I have printed the image onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, afterwards I have used a oval die to cut it out and a fancy one for the mount out of beige card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with the backing paper from the image, then I have placed my mounted image towards the left and I then created a floral spray with pine cones, die cut fern leaves and holly berries and a red ribbon in the middle. The sentiment is one of a die cut that I have in my stash.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Teams have created for your inspiration and then I hope you will want to take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge, and I do hope that you will come back on January 15th when my A Team will be back to show you our first Challenge in the New Year, though the B Team will be back on January 8th with their first Challenge. And now I want to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a even better New Year from all my A Team and The Paper Shelter.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

The Paper Shelter's Birthday Blog Hop and Challenge - "Special Birthday"

Oh my its been a busy few days for me and Id completely forgotten that this week I am hosting our very special Birthday Blog Hop and Challenge, and yesterday I was eating my breakfast and I thought oh its the 4th of December tomorrow and I have not got anything prepared, Oh well they say that as you get older the brain cells start to die, I think mine have gone of a bit earlier and left me in a terrible muddle, but here we go and I do hope you enjoy the Blog Hop and Challenge.
Good Morning fellow crafters and welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop and Challenge and 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!!!! If you have landed here from The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot then you're heading in the right direction - if not then you'll want to head on back 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 for the Challenge, details of which are on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot.

For my card I have used this gorgeous image and background you will find them both here and I know Ive rather cheated as I have printed this image several time them cut them out and decoupaged them up, but it really makes a statement and I thought it would be fabulous for the girl who loves to ride motorbikes. I have also used the backing paper that came with the image and you will also find it here with the image.
From here you will need to hop on over to Angela.  Don't forget to leave your comment for a chance of winning your choice of one of the fab digi's available in store.
Hop! Hop! Hop!

Good luck and hope you're enjoying it so far I do hope if the girls have inspired you, you will also take part in our "Special Birthday" Challenge as well.
