It's a BIRTHDAY Celebration at Papertake Weekly as it turns 5!!!

Hi everyone!! Are you ready for a party?? Cause we've got one for you this week! Papertake Weekly is turning FIVE today!! And we are celebrating BIG Time! First we have some of the original Papertake Weekly Design Team members that are joining us this week! How fun is that??!! AND...we've got loads of fantastic prizes for you to win and loads of gorgeous cards for you to look at!!  So first things first..... the new challenge because it's the first Tuesday of the month, is anything goes. Seriously...could it get any easier?? :D  The optional extra is to make a card or project that celebrates something. But again, it's totally optional. Now there are rules to all the fun, so pay close attention.  First, you must play along with the challenge. So enter your card at Papertake Weekly (new projects only - no back linking and we do check!) After you've entered your card and linked up to Papertake Weekly, visit all the designers and leave comments on our cards/projects for the Birthday celebration.  Then sit back and keep your fingers crossed!!  You can find all the details, plus links to all the designers over at Papertake Weekly!! Now here is what I've created for you today. We never would have made it five years if it weren't for our loyal fans and followers, so this is my way of saying THANK YOU to you!!


I used one of my favorite Tilda images #240 Tilda with wrapped heart from the Sweet Crazy Love Collection from Magnolia-licious! Isn't she the most precious thing? Just about everything is cut using the Silhouette. The Thank You sentiment which I created the shadow for,  the layered pumpkin, and the frame for Tilda.


She's stamped with Memento ink onto Cryogen White and then colored with Copic markers. The papers are Bella Blvd matted with Bazzill cardstock.


The ribbon is May Arts, the twine from my stash and the pearls are made with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen. I also used chalk ink around the edges of the pumpkin and the image frame.  So that's it for me today! Thanks so much for celebrating this big day with us at Papertake Weekly! Can't wait to see what you come up with for the celebration!! Enjoy hopping around to visit everyone, and I'm truly looking forward to the next five years! We never would have turned five if it weren't for YOU! Thanks for visiting and until next time! Hugs!!
