The Paper Shelter Challenge Anything Goes

Good morning and welcome to my last DT post for the Paper Shelter for 2018! Hasn't this year flown by?! Lots of good things have happened this year and a few not so good things too. Let's hope that 2019 will continue with the good!

Our challenge this time is an Anything Goes challenge and will last for three weeks, taking us into the new year. The next challenge will be back on January 9th with Team A's first challenge of the year!

I used the cute Merry Christmas My Dear for one of my last Christmas cards and made a fairly big card (just over 7 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches I think!), so the embellishments were kept to a minimum. I did attempt to colour the background to look a bit like there was panelling on the walls, but my pens were running out towards the end, so weren't as good as I had hoped for!
