Candace's Birthday Blog Hop!

Hello, How you Bean?! Welcome to Candace's Birthday Blog Hop! 
 
Today we are celebrating our dear friend Candace's birthday!
This hop is sponsored by SVG Cutting Files and Jaded Blossom!
Now if you are here from Jaymie then you're in the right place,
 if not then you may want to start in the beginning.
If you get lost I have the entire line up below this post.
 
Here is what I created...
Notecards  from the Divergent Trilogy

Candace practically FORCED me to read the Divergent Trilogy just so we could talk about it (not really...once I started reading the first one I was HOOKED! AND super excited to chit chat with her about them!) So I asked Annie to create the Faction symbols for me. If you haven't read the books this might seem a little strange. But in the books at age 16 you choose a Faction--based on your "character" and a test you take to determine which ones you can choose from --only catch is if you choose to leave the Faction you were born into you say goodbye to your family forever.
Now I had to get a little creative adding the Jaded Blossom stamps to the note cards...but I think I did ok. lol!

Pop Quiz-- do you know which is which?
Here is a cheat sheet:

FIRE=Dauntless=Brave

Jaded Blossom Bless the USA
& Mini Tag Dies

Hands=Abnegation=Selfless
Jaded Blossom Super Hero
 
Eye=Erudite=Intelligence
(told you I had to get creative! lol)
Jaded Blossom Science Matters
 
Tree=Amity=Peace
 
Jaded Blossom  Christmas Wishes
(easy one!!--now brace yourself--the last one is kinda stretching it!!)
 
Scale=Candor=Honesty
Jaded Blossom Another Year Older
(Ok-ok that one wasn't TOTALLY the truth!)
 
I hope that you enjoyed my project Candace!
I wish you the happiest birthday ever! Thank you for being such a great friend and making me read these books! ;)
I am guessing your fear simulator would look something like this:
