My turn again! Here's a sketch and colour combo for you.

Hello Mashup followers and newbies alike, welcome to a new Friday Mashup Challenge.  Gosh it seems like my turn has rolled around again so quickly, I have to say this is such fun, thinking up challenge ideas and providing inspiration cards along with the other Design Team members.

This time I decided to go with a sketch and a rich colour combo to challenge your creativity.  I love all those regal tones and they were the first colour family I collected.
Here's how it works...

This week for the Mashup Challenge, you are welcome to:
     1. Create a project using the Colors "More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler & Vanilla".
   2. Create a project using the above Sketch.
   3. Or "Mash it Up!" and create a project using the Sketch & Color Combo.

For my inspiration card, I've chosen to mash it up but also went square with the sketch.  I dragged out my woven paper background for this as well, I love the effect it gives and I haven't used it for a while.  I've stamped up a number of different images onto very vanilla, more mustard and cherry cobbler card then cut them into strips and wove them into a backing mat.  I've used Strength and Hope for the main images which have been rock n rolled in More Mustard and Cherry Cobbler then coated with a light spray of Gold shimmer.

Did you know Stampin' Up! is donating $2 from the sale of each and every Strength and Hope stamp set?  How amazing is that, the set is gorgeous so you get a beautiful set of stamps and assist our Australian and New Zealand scientists to find a cure for breast cancer.  This set is available from the current Autumn-Winter Mini Catalogue.

I Can't wait to see all the fabulous entries using this sketch and/or colour combo.  Check out the inspiration from the DT plus our Fabulous Guest Designer!  Enjoy and have fun creating.

PS Thank God that I made this card early and scheduled the post.  The dreaded flu is back with a vengence and I'm laid low with it, fever, headache, aches and pains and sniffles...OH and a burning throat.  I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy....(not sure who that is, but I dont' wish it on them!)  Hope you all stay healthy and happy.

    This is a great challenge. I really wasnt sure about the colors at first but once I started playing with them I loved them!

    Your card is fantastic. That woven background looks like it takes a lot of patience!

  4. I love this weaving you've created. It's a fabulous way to use little scraps. I also love the butterflies-such a beautiful card.
