Friday Mashup #40 Happy Birthday!!

This week at the Friday Mashup it's all about Birthdays!! I'm hosting this week and January is packed full of Birthdays for me.. so, I have a ton of cards to make and I figured this would be a great way to get started. Don't you love this Birthday Drink?

For this Mashup we're using Pastels aka Chalks or you could use some Chalk Inks Mashed up with a fun Birthday theme.. as always you are welcome to do the Mashup or just choose one of them separately. For my project I went with the Mashup! For my card Sketch I used this week's MoJo Monday Sketch LOVE IT!!! This is a fun sketch.

I started with the colors Bravo Burgundy, Sahara Sand & Pink Pirouette right off my Color Coach! My card base is Bravo Burgundy with some layers of Pink Piroette & Sahara Sand DSP's. I also added a circle of Whisper White that I ran through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

I stamped the Cupcake image onto a piece of shimmer white card stock in VersaMark and then using a cotton ball I pounced the Pastels over the VersaMarked image. Then using the coordinating cupcake punch I punched it out and pieced it onto a Bravo Burgundy  1 3/4" Circle. I cut the heart image out freehand and then I added apearl to the center.  I stamped the sentiment inBravo Burgundy as well.

Head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week for the challenge and we hope you'll join us and there is still time to use this sketch over at MoJo Monday.. I'm also linking my card up to a new Weekly card meme called 52 Week Pickup! Head over to Patrice's Blog and see what it's all about. This is one sketch you will use again and again! Have a great weekend!
