Good Morning lovely crafters!

Welcome to The Paper Shelter Blog Hop! In celebration of The Paper Shelter's 11th Birthday on the 8th of December! This will be a two week challenge, with both teams taking part, and it's our way of thanking The Paper Shelter for sharing their wonderful images with us, and sponsoring our challenge.

The theme for this special challenge is:

If you've arrived here from Dewi's blog, then you're heading in the right direction! If not, then you'll want to pop back to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog to start again, because you don't want to miss out on this one. Both Design Teams are participating, showcasing the gorgeous images available from The Paper Shelter, 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 Blog.

For my card, I have used the gorgeous Retro Space Girl and gave her a sparkly, inked background a she is flying through all the stars!
