Shop Pumpkin Spice blog hop


Welcome to the blog hop for the first ever design team for ShopPumkinSpice!

Here is today's lineup:
June (you're here!)


and my card:

  I imagine the girl asking, "Are you my Prince Charming?"  My inspiration came from the current challenge, "A picture is worth a thousand words" at Order of the Opus Gluei.  I was also inspired by this card created by my lovely friend, Lauren.  I really enjoy the ladies at Order of the Opus Gluei challenge blog, though I have not played along in awhile.  I don't believe every card requires a sentiment, so this challenge was right up my alley :)

  I made my card using papers from the 8x8 Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime collection:

  I am so grateful for my blog friends and new followers that I am giving away TWO prizes: a $20 gift certificate to Shop Pumpkin Spice and a 12x12 Echo Park Victoria Gardens collection pack to two lucky people.  You do not have to be a follower to win, but you do need to contact me if you win.  Contest closes on August 11th.  I will announce the winner early on Saturday, August 13th.  If I have not heard from the winner by August 22nd, I will redraw.

Supplies:
Cricut cartridge:  Elegant Edges cut @ 5 1/2" border using fit-to-length button
paper:  Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime collection:  "Woodland Fantasy"; "Primrose Cottage"; "Fairy Folk"; "Enchanted Forest"
embossing folder:  Cuttlebug "Floral Screen" by Provo Craft
ink:  Stampin' Up! chocolate chip
tools:  Xacto knife (to fussy cut the floral frame)

Your next stop on the hop is Ann.

Happy Friday!

Oh, your card reminds me of my daughter's first birthday invitation! The one I did was nowhere near as beautiful or detailed as this one but it had almost the exact same fairy and frog on it! Now my sweet girl is six and I pray that one day God will guide her to her Prince Charming!

Rosemary said...

Welcome back to Opus Gluei, glad you like our challenges because we LOVE your creativity!

Oh my gosh, okay, where to begin with all the things I love about this. I totally see your inspiration and what you think the little fairy is imagining, and I believe those colors for the surround are PERFECT, they work wonderfully with the image and draw the eye in. Also, I see that embossed background and that's making me think of the fairy wings and wildflowers. All in all, lovely.

Please come back over and consider more of our challenges!
