Hoola Hoopin!

It seems like forever since I've updated my blog!  Well, it has been almost a week, so I guess that's almost forever!  ;)  It's been a busy week and I've been working on lots of projects.  More about that tomorrow.  For now I have another card for {Pin}spirational Challenge.  First of all, our sponsor this week is Folded Paper & Printed Pixels.  This was my first time using their digi images for a card and I really had fun looking around their shop.
I really had fun putting this one together.  First of all, here is the photo that we used for our inspiration.

I don't think the colors here are as pretty as in the original photo.  They are so vibrant and really pop out.  I used the colors for my inspiration for my card.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Folded Paper & Printed Pixels - Hula Hoopin
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up Riveting (Retired)
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Pumpkin Pie, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery
  • Ink - Tuxedo Memento Black
  • Pattern Paper - Prima - Double Deux (Just got this and I love it)
  • ; Leaves - Martha Stewart Leaf Punch
  • Ribbon - stash
  • 1 1/4" circle and 1 1/2" circle punches
  • Copic Markers - C1, C2, C3; B0000; E50, E51, E53; R81, R83, R85, E; RV06, RV55, E57; T2; Y11, Y21; YR01, YR02, YR04, YR09
Now it's your turn.  Check out all the awesome cards made by the fabulous DT and then get your crafting materials together and make a card for our challenge.  You could be the prize winner this week.  You can find links to all the blogs over there on the left sidebar.  Don't forget to go to the {Pin}spirational Challenge blog and link up the card you made.
