Every Day is an Occasion Turns 1 Blog Hop


Happy Friday and welcome to the Every Day is an Occasion Turns 1 Happy Birthday Blog Hop!!


Jill from Every Day is an Occasion is celebrating her one year blogaversary!! Today you will be hopping from blog to blog gathering birthday inspiration. If you are just stopping in or joining me from your dashboard, you will want to start at the beginning with our awesome hostess Jill of Every Day is an Occasion. If you are following along with the hop, you should have arrived from the sweet and talented Shelly of My Paper Love.


I am just loving my new Sizzix Accordion die!! So many possibilities!! For this card, I was inspired by Karen Burniston's use of clear plastic for the die (HERE) and this amazing card (HERE).


For the clear plastic, I recycled Spellbinders die packages. The papers for this card are from Prima's Fairy Rhymes stack. I wanted my birthday card to be a bouquet of flowers, so I cut several from Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals and Tattered Florals Garland with Core'dinations paper. The swirls are TH Elegant Flourishes dies. The fairy in the corner and the bird in the top inside corner were fussy cut from the Prima paper. The butterflies are Spellbinders Fanciful Flight dies.


The banner along the top and the fairy in the corner were also cut from the Prima paper. The sentiment banner is a Spellbinders Nested Pennant die. "Make a" was stamped from a Hero Arts alphabet set. "Wish" was cut with a Spellbinders Opulent Opals die and a TH Wish Movers and Shapers insert.


The crystal gems in the center of the flowers and on the butterflies are from Recollections.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes
  2. Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Dotty
  3. Craftin' Desert Diva's #13 - Anything Goes
  4. DL.Art - Thankful Thursday - August Anything Goes
  5. Sunday Funday - August Linky Party 
  6. Inspire Me Fridays #118 - Anything Goes
