Friday Mashup with a Freshly Made Sketch!

Happy Friday Y'all!!! It's time for a new challenge at the Friday Mashup and this week our hostess Tara has a fun challenge for us using Vellum and Stitching! I recently reorganized my craft area and it's a major improvement.. especially since i can get to my sewing machine now!!! 

To get this started I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketches sketch this week and after I created one card and I decided to make two!! This is a greta sketch Ladies!! 

I created my card base but stitching a piece of vellum card stock to a piece of DSP and then I added some Sequins inside before stitching it all the way around on this first card. Then I die cut a balloon from some Pistachio Pudding and adhered it to a white panel matted with some Crisp Cantaloupe. I die cut the Birthday from some Gold foil paper and then decided where to stamp the "happy" & "to you" from the Endless Wishes set in Calypso Coral. To finish the card off I added some Gold Cupped and flat sequins to the outside of the card as well. 

I created this second card the same way changing the colors up.. I used the Gold Soiree Specialty DSP for both cards and pulled the colors from the paper. This one has a Calypso Coral balloon and Garden Green stamped sentiment. 

This card doesn't h ave sequins inside the vellum area I just added some of the flat back ones to the outside. I really like the gold with the Green color. 

Be sure to head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see what the other Design Team members created this week.. The challenge is open until Wednesday @ 6pm ESt. The Freshly Made Sketches challenge is open until Monday @ 12pm PST.
