StampFairy's First Blog Hop

Good Morning!  I hope your New Year is off to a great start!  Thank you so much for joining us for StampFairy's first blog hop.  This will be a fun one with great prizes.  If you came here from Pinky's blog, then you're on the right track.  If you're here just to visit me, thank you! or if you get lost along the way, click here at the Challenge Blog which is where it all begins.

There is a theme going on here - you need to join us for the challenge, too.  It's called Color Explosion - 2 dp, 3 embellishments and use as many colors as possible to make your card POP!  Here's my card....


I have the two patterned papers which are digi papers, my 3 embellishments are the lace trim, the embossing and the white dots on the label piece.  I think I also hit the lots of color, too, with those stripes!  I did use a great sketch from CLP {Crafting Life's Pieces} Challenge Blog to create the card and I am pleased with the results.  The base is actually Night of Navy, but the picture makes it look black.  My lighting didn't want to work for me last night.

Supplies:
Card stock:  Neenah Classic Crest, Whisper White, Night of Navy
Paper:  Just The Girls - Skylar (ACOT)
Copics:  E00, E02, E34, E37, R27, R29, RV10
Tools:  Cuttlebug, Paisley embossing folder, Labels One Nesties, white gel pen
Embellishments:  White Lace scrapbook trim
