Friday Mashup #58

This week Lisa is our Hostess and we are horning our Veterans and Fallen Heros. Memorial Day is just around the corner and this is a great challenge to show your support for the Troops or to just say Thanks. This is a special Challenge to Lisa and myself since we are both Military Families. It's also a Color Challenge.. Who doesn't like a Color Challenge?

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :

  1. Make a project that's "Patriotic or for Remembrance".

  2. Or Make a project with the colors " Whisper White, Night of Navy, Poppy Parade & Daffodil Delight."

  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Remembrance or Patriotic project using the colors above."

  4. Donate your card to a Wounded Solider or that Special Service Member in your Life!

* If you would like to Donate a Card to a Wounded Service Member you can send your cards to Holly. The Red Cross at the Walter Reed National Medical Center will accept the cards and distribute them to Wounded Service Members throughout the hospital. Please send your cards to Holly Endress P.O. Box 18 Arnold, MD 21012 no later then May 31st. She will be hand delivering them to the Red Cross at the WRNMC.

For my card I started with a Night of Navy Card base and then I added a layer of Poppy Parade that I embossed with the Houndstooth Embossing Folder. Then I added a layer of Daffodil Delight and I stamped along the edge with the stars from the retired set The Free & The Brave.

For the image... I stamped it onto a piece of Whisper White in Night of Navy Ink and then matted it to a piece of Night of Navy as well. I stamped a second image onto a piece of scrap white card stock and then punched out the portion of the image I wanted. I colored it in with some Poppy Parade Ink . I used a 1 1/4" circle punch and a 1 3/8" circle punched from some more Night of Navy. I added it to my image with some dimensionals creating the Spotlighting technique.

Head over to the Friday Mashup and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week and we hope you will join us!
