Multi Challenge Mashup!!

Happy Friday everyone.. Who's ready for the weekend and sleeping in? After being sick last weekend I hope this one is more productive!! It's time for a new challenge at the Friday Mashup and this week I'm your hostess and we're Mashing Up.. "Congrats" cards with Shaker cards. 

And with all of our Mashup's you can choose to the challenges separately if you prefer. 

I also created my card based around a few other challenges this week.. Spring Showers & Flowers for the Wednesday Challenge at Simon Says Stamp and The Gossip Column Challenge at Winnie & Walter. Which is asking us to pick a color combo from the Pantone Spring palette. 

I went with the Winnie & Walter set The Big, the bold & the Extras along with a Congrats die cut from the Essentials by Ellen collection. 

I Embossed the main panel with the Diagonal stripes folder from Stampin' Up! and then I die cut a circle from the front of the panel and set it aside. I stamped the flowers and banner onto some white cardstock and cut them out. I went with the Pink, Green & Grey palette from the challenge. 

I die cut the Congrats from some grey card stock and then I added some acetate to my shaker window and glued the congrats to over the opening. I adhered the flowers and the banner where I wanted them and added some foam adhesive to the back of the panel to create the shaker and assemble the card. I filled the shaker with some Iridescent White shaker filling from Lucy Abrams. I created a grey card base and added a piece of white for the backing of the shaker and then I adhered the panel to the card base. It's very pretty in person.. And so fun! Now I just need someone to get married so I can use it. 

Be sure to head over to the Friday Mashup blog and see more great inspiration from the Design Team!
