Friday Mashup!! Scurrying is a "Learned Art"

Hello and Happy Friday, everyone!! Time for another Friday Mashup! We have a fun challenge this week from Holly...
  1. Make a project using your "Favorite Muppet color combo"
  2. Or make a project "for kids"
  3. Or make a project "For kids...using your favorite Muppet color combo"

WooHoo!! I love the Muppets! Very silly, but oh so adorable! The toughest part was deciding which Muppet to use as my inspiration. Of course, there's Kermit...and I love Animal and Gonzo! But I decided to pick the sassy and always hungry "Rizzo the Rat." He's the only rat I enjoy watching!! ( )

Everything here is frm Stampin' Up. My card features the colors riding hood red, chocolate chip, river rock, basic black and (retired) crushed curry. Hey...gotta use up my stash! I embossed the chocolate chip with the houndstooth folder in my Big Shot. The small and mid-sized circles were punched out; the large circle was made with the Sizzix circles die. I embossed most of the circles with perfect polka dots. The little fox (in lieu of a rat!) is from Fox and Friends. The sentiment is from On Your Birthday. I used my chocolate chip marker for the dots on the large circle to keep it flatter. The striped ribbon is long-retired...again, trying to use up stuff. I like the way the stripes contrast with the circles. Hope you do too!

Be sure to check out this week's challenge ...and play along! Use keyword FM54 in your gallery...and tell us who your favorite Muppet is!
