Friday Mashup #3

It's time once again for another Friday Mashup! This week's it's Lesley's choice and she has chosen Black & White and Mashed it up with square.. So the challenge is a Black and White Square card or project.


Man, my card was a photographic nightmare!!! It was really bright and windy outside and when my card blew over it was covered in pollen..lol So I fought with it for a while until I got a good photo lol.


My card has some shimmer and I really wanted that to show.. I used some retired DSP specialty paper that is white with stripes and it has some shine, so I spritzed my focal piece with some Vanilla Smooch to make that shine as well.


My card measures 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 I used a piece of Textured Basic Black for my base followed by a layer of White DSP, Basic Black and another Piece of Whisper White that was Smooched. I ran my focal piece through the Big Shot with the Manhattan flower Embossing Folder and my sentiment is from the Level 3 Hostess set Occasional Quotes. I love this set!

I added some Black Grosgrain ribbon, I need to get some Black Satin Ribbon because I think that would of been prettier for this project. On the side of the Ribbon I added some half back pearls to tie the shimmer all together.

When my finger nails pop up in photos I get a lot of comments about my nail color..lol This is Orly's Gilded Coral. Now make sure you head over to The Mashup! Blog and see what the other Designer's have created this week to get you started and then link up and show us your squares!

I hope you have a great weekend..
