Stamp Fairy Challenge and Blog Hop

Wahoo! I have exciting news here today... I've joined the StampFairy design team! Today we're introducing the new design team and celebrating with a special challenge and blog hop. So if you're on the hop and a new visitor to my blog I welcome you!  Now if you came here from Carissa's blog you're on the right track. If you happened on my blog and want to participate in the hop, you can start at the StampFairy Challenge Blog. You want to make every stop along the hop because we have a few hidden extra prizes among the team! More about that later in this post because first let's introduce the challenge.


The StampFairy challenge this week is "Celebrate with a Color Explosion" using 2 designer papers, 3 embellishments and use as many colors as you can to make your card stand out!  So here's my try at it using the adorable "Josy Wrapped up for Christmas".  She's perfect wrapped up for a birthday celebration too which is what I've done!

My two DPs are the background papers from Webster's Pages and the three embellishments are the flower cluster, the pearl flourish and the third is the pearl embellishments I added to the cupcakes in the bottom right corner. I think the use of many colors is there too : )


Now it's your turn to create a card for the StampFairy challenge and become eligible to win the hidden prizes along the hop today. Here what you need to do:

1. Become a follower of StampFairy's Challenge Blog
2. Leave a comment on each of the Design Team's blogs including the StampFairy main blog here
3. Join this week's challenge using a StampFairy image (Need an image - check out the freebie section at the StampFairy store)

Now leave me some love and then to continue on the hop you'll visit Emma.  I've listed all the Hop stops in order below so you won't miss one!
