Huge congratulations to the team :) I am participating in the festivities as a Guest designer representing STAMPlorations which is also one of the sponsors there :)

The colorful confetti was incorporated as colorful party supplies on my card :)

To make this card, I stamped the images and colored them with Prisma Color pencils. I diecut the sentiment and also stamped the rest of the sentiment to make my focal point.
