Papertake Weekly is 5 Years Old!




It is our 5th birthday over at the Papertake Weekly challenge blog and we are having a fabulous party which you're all invited to - and there are prizes! Fabulous prizes I have to say from our very special sponsors:
 
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning these fabulous prizes is to join in with the challenge which is an Anything Goes challenge with the option to make a card for a celebration then visit all of the DT and Guest DT blogs leaving a comment as the prizes are all hidden around our little community of crafters. You don't know where we have hidden the prizes so the more comments you leave the more chances you'll have to win the prizes!
 
This is my card - I made a 5th birthday card to celebrate our 5th birthday
 

I used:
Lili of the Valley pre-printed birthday girl image then made a number 5 badge using a brooch back from here.  I added plenty of Stardust Stickles,  5mm red gems, Kort & Godt beaded swirl branch, Wild Orchid carnation, cosmos, sweetheart blossoms and a large white rosebud

Here is the list of everyone taking part in the party, the time difference between the countries will affect what time people post to their blogs so if their post isn't up straight away then check back in a few hours as they may still be fast asleep in bed!!
