"A Special Celebration"

 The sweet Paper Shelter Image "Hope"

A closer look at the lovely image!
 A look at the detail and die cut!
 The sparkle and the bling!
Are you ready to Celebrate? It is The Paper Shelter's 4th Birthday Party! There are fabulous prizes to be had and all you have to do is enter our challenge. We want to see your cards or projects that show celebration. I chose this lovely image "Hope". When I first saw this lovely image I knew I had to color it right away. She is a beautiful image and I felt like I didn't do her justice with my coloring. I added some rhinestones to her hair....there are actually holly berries but I liked the sparkle. I added liquid glass to her eyes, Stickles to the star with a small rhinestone in the center. The die is a Memory Box that is new this year. I popped the pieces of holly and berries that are cut free by the die with foam and then added liquid glass to the berries. Spica pen added some sparkle to the eyelets where her vest is laced. Some pretty white pearls and some glitter to the snowflakes popped the adornment on the vest. 
A pretty Memory Box die cut made the lace and I also added rhinestones to the lace to finish my card.
I am still away visiting my brother but I hope you will play along with our Birthday Celebration at The Paper Shelter. Before you do check out the lovely images at The Paper Shelter remember you can win a $30 dollar gift certificate if you use one of our images.  The next person along the HOP is http://lenascrappar.blogspot.co.uk/ her lovely creation will take your breath away!
My Song:
"Anyway"
You can spend your whole life buildin'
Somethin' from nothin'
One storm can come and blow it all away
Build it anyway
You can chase a dream
That seems so out of reach
And you know it might not ever come your way
Dream it anyway
God is great, but sometimes life ain't good
When I pray it doesn't always turn out like I think it should
But I do it anyway
I do it anyway
