Happy Monday Everyone and Welcome to The Paper Girls Challenge BLOG HOP!!!!

It's a Birthday and an Anniversary and a BLOG HOP.....all in one!! 
How fun is that??

On top of our usual challenges that happen every 2 weeks on the first and third Monday of each month, this month we have decided to Celebrate our Blogiversary with a Blog Hop!!!
Our talented Designers have created gorgeous projects using Celebration as a theme. And also the use of wood veneer or chipboard shapes.
A random winner will receive a $25 gift card from the amazing and addictive store
Creative Embellishments

For my project I decided to make a card.  It's always nice to have a beautiful handmade card on hand. I  pulled out a favourite of mine,  My Mind's Eye Howdy Doody.  Such a versatile timeless collection.  It never gets old!!  I also used Tim Holtz Distress Stain on my wood veneer flowers.

If you have come to me from the very talented Michele's blog, then you are the right track.
