Paper Sweeties 1st Birthday Designer's Hop, Day 3!

Welcome back to day three of Paper Sweeties celebration of their first birthday!  There is another wonderful list today of talented designers for the birthday blog hop!  If you have missed day one and two of this awesome blog hop please scroll down to my previous posts.  One lucky winner will win the ENTIRE AUGUST RELEASE SET, which values $50!

I would like to share with you today the project that I made for the blog hop...

I started with a bright pink card base and embossed it with Modern Wallpaper from Cuttlebug.  I paper pieced the sweet little Emma.  Her darling outfit is from the stamp set You Are Fabulous.  The banner was stamped on papers from Bo Bunny and Echo Park using the stamp set Fun Shapes.  The sentiments are from the stamp set You're Invited. And, if you take a look at the balloon since it is Paper Sweeties  first birthday, I used the number one from the stamp set Fancy Monograms. 

Happy 1st Birthday to Paper Sweeties!!!  It is with great honor and pleasure to be on such a fabulous design team with ever so talented ladies!  Debbie has designed fabulous stamp sets to be used for any crafting creation.  I truly LOVE her sweet stamp sets!!!
