Friday Mashup #42 It's All about Color!

Well it's Friday and time once again for the Friday Mashup! This week Rita is our Hostess and she is bringing us a Color Challenge and Mashing it up with some Paper Piercing!

I've gotten the cough & sore throat my son had last week so I wasn't feeling too hot today so I went with a CASE card.. I made my version of a card featured in the Occasion Mini catalog using the set P.S. I love you. This was the second set I had to have from the catty, the first being the Gnome set!

I started with an Early Espresson card base and then I added a piece of the new Twitterpated DSP in Blushing Bride. I paper pierced the edges using my piercing tool and guide. Then I stamped the Heart image in Riding Hood Red onto the same color of Card stock for a tone on tone look and punched it out with the Heart Punch. For the sentiment I used my markers to color in it and used the Modern Label Punch.

The hearts are from the new Embosslit called Fashionable Hearts. I die cut them in Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Early Espresso & Blushing Bride. I added a Blushing Bride button from the Mini Catalog as well and threaded some Early Espresso Baker's Twine through it. On the sample in the catalog they had a nice pretty bow off to the side, but my Baker's Twine was not having it when it came time to make a bow. So, I changed that up as well as the colors.

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week.. So many stunning Samples! This is a challenge you will want to join in for sure... How can you pass up this color combo?

I hope everyone has a great weekend, today is my actual Birthday just one more year closer to the big  I'm getting a pedicure this morning and having lunch with my neighbor (Who's Birthday is today too) and then my husband and I are supposed to see a movie later tonight. But we'll see how all that goes once I wake up in the AM. I hope this sickness stays at a low level.
