Fruit and Flowers Best Wishes



The Friday Mashup this week is all about colour - Early Espresso, Riding Hood Red, and Blushing Bride.  You can create a project with these colours or use paper piercing or mash it up and do both.  I've combined this with the sketch challenge over at Simply Stampin' - 


I love these colours together, they are so yummy.  I've made a best wishes card but it could pass for lots of occasions. 

My card base is Riding Hood Red.  I matted Early Espresso onto Blushing Bride after embossing it with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.  I then punched out 6 squares of Blushing Bride using the 1 3/8" square punch and 6 squares of Very Vanilla with the 1 1/4" square punch.  I corner rounded two edges on each of the Very Vanilla squares and sponged the edges with Riding Hood Red.  The flower is from Fruit and Flowers.  It was first stamped in Blushing Bride and the edges rolled in Riding Hood Red. The sentiment square was stamped with the flower in Blushing Bride only and was stamped off first so it faded into the background.  The sentiment itself is from Silhouette Sentiments and stamped in Riding Hood Red.  

Tomorrow is the launch of SALE-A-BRATION.
