Lulupu Challenge#10 ~ Birthday Special Blog Hop Day 1

Hello Everyone!

Today my baby www.lulupu.com turns 1! Am super happy and oh so excited!

Yeah! I cant believe its been an year already.... it still fees like yest when i dreamt about it. It's been a totally exciting journey especially for me to watch my dream turn into reality and I couldn't have done it without each and everyone of you! Thank You!

March will be going to be fun at Lulupu - The Craft Lounge! We will have many giveaways and tonnes of fun so do ensure you follows us all around FB, Twitter, Pinterest and Youtube! To kick start the celebration we have a Lulupu Design Team Blog Hop along with our monthly challenge. So if you have landed at this post its the very start for a fun filled week ahead!

So here I am sharing my project for Lulupu Challenge #10 - Let's Celebrate.

As the challenge suggests, we were to take inspiration from a fellow Design Team member and create a project that celebrates.... well... just about anything. My inspiration was Ujjwal's This Napkin Fold Card :


which totally got me cracking. It was so pretty that i wanted to try it for myself so i was inspired by the folds and here is my take on it.


Well, unlike Ujjwal i aint any good with handmade flowers so i went straight ahead for the latest Prima Marketing Zhypher collection. What my card shows is how a particular paper collection and coordinating embellishment can complete your cards/projects super quick. This one was a breeze! 


Studio Calico Wood Veneers are my latest crush and i love how they complete all my projects so aptly. The chipboards are again from Zhypher Collection. Love em! It reads "Let's Celebrate".
Can you see the Pie Lane Glitter Balls?



Here is a look at the open card. I have used the Crafters Companion Cosmic Swirls  to create the effect with Distress inks


Added the K&co Layered Accents Stickers and a stamped sentiment and voila you are done. 
See how easy peasy it is.

Hope you liked it and am guessing you are gonna join us in Lulupu Challenge #10 too. Thanks for passing by.

Continue the Lulupu Design Team Blog Hop with the next post on 3rd March By Ujjwal. Also here is the list to help you track the blog hop ending on 9th March.

Wow Karuna.. This style of folding and making a card is wonderful... I always remember making a game in childhood with a similar kind of folds where we used to write colors outside and names of places or animals inside.. This brings on childhood memories and intensify my love for making craft projects.. loved both urs and ujjwal's card.. fabulous inspirations.. Lots of bloggoversary wishes and wish u many happy returns of the day... :)
