When I stumbled upon Color Throwdown (CTD) and The Friday Mashup (FM), I knew these were challenges I'd enjoy doing on a regular basis, so rather than creating a card for each, I combined them into one. Obviously, this is nothing new - others do this all the time and why it took me so long to see the light, I'll never know. But it suddenly struck me that this two-for-one deal is a way for me not to burn out on stamping again. Duh!
(sorry for the quality; gray & cloudy when I took this.)
FM43 was to make a project using: a) the featured sketch, or b) something new from your stash, or c) Mash It Up and do both, so I chose to Mash It Up! The something new was the cute birdbath image from SU's Touch of Kindness set. I inked up some of the images for my stash when I was at my pal Gwen's for the shoebox swap, but I think I'll have to get this set for myself. I added some Stickles to the water and a few Dewdrops for sparkle, and I made that little tag with Tim Holtz Fragments - I love these things!
Brilliant card! It always takes me soooo long to combine challenges if I don't know right off the bat what Iwant to do! I am so very happy to see you'd ping it so well!! Those designer papers are to die for!
This is wonderful!! I love the pattern paper, and the stickles aswater over the fountain! Thanks for joining us at The Friday Mashup!
Fab use of paisley, judging by your blog you're a fan of it too! Love your card, lots of bright colours and a lovely image.
Thanks for sharing your card in our challenge.

You did a fantastic job of combining the 2 different challenges! I love that image and I'm kicking myself, because I could have used that same image for my something new, as I have it but have never inked it up! LOL The little tag is the perfect touch!

Another stunning card showing off some beautiful patterned paper. This image is so sweet, and the dew drops are such a wonderful addition. I love that tag, too!
Hey! How'd I miss this post?!?
This is super duper cute, Susan! I love the layout (which I never would have braved) and the touches of shimmer/sparkle make your image & coloring pop. A fragment! Woohoo!!! YGG! I really need to use mine. Thanks for the inspiration. ((HUGS))
