FridayMashup!! Make a Wish!!

Happy Friday everyone!! It's time for another Friday Mashup challenge, and I am SO excited about this one!! You see, tomorrow is my birthday!! WooHoo! I incorporated that into my challenge for you, including my favorite color combo! *wink* But more than that, this week's challenge will determine our Guest Designer for August!! So let's get started!! Here is your challenge:

  1. Make a birthday card/project

  2. Make a card/project using the color scheme of Not Quite Navy, Cherry Cobbler, Always Artichoke, and Sahara Sand (I love the Regals collection!)

  3. Make a birthday card/project using NQN, cherry cobbler, always artchoke and sahara sand!!

Here is my card (using all Stampin' Up products):

I used a sahara sand card base to balance the other dark colors. I added layers of cherry cobbler (embossed with Petals a Plenty folder in the big shot) and always artichoke (embossed with Perfect Polka Dots folder.) The main image is from Just Believe, colored with markers and stamped on very vanilla. I sponged artichoke on the bottom and a tiny bit of NQN on top. The brads are from a retired set, but you can get cherry cobbler brads in the current regals pack. The ribbon is luscious, but sadly retired ribbons original. I have been hoarding it! The good news is that this year's IBC has some new ribbon options for those of us who love this color! My sentiment is from On Your Birthday, and I paired my 1-3/8" circle punch and small scallop circle punch. The last touch comes with some basic pearls placed on the ribbon.

I can't wait to see what you create this week! AND I can't wait to see who will become our August Guest Designer!! Play along, check out the other DT entries on The Friday Mashup blog, and be sure to use the keyword FM16 in your online gallery!
