Simply Stampin' meets the Friday Mashup

Two challenges in one today - Simply Stampin' which is a colour challenge using Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette and Marina Mist (more on this later!) and also the Friday Mashup which is a sketch mashed up with Versamark ghosting. Now I did try to do the ghosting technique with ghostly results (sorry ghastly!) so no mashup just the sketch. I thought I may as well use the colours in the SSC and that's where I got it wrong - it should have been Marina Mist but I had it in my head that it was Pacific Point so that's what I used. Never mind Friday Mashup I think I am suffering from Brain Mashup. Anyway onto the card - I started with a Soft Suede card blank matted with Very Vanilla which had been stamped with a flower from Growing Green. Tht tag is cut with the Two Tags die in Pacific Point and the overlay piece in Pink Pirouette with a piece of Soft Suede Taffeta ribbon tied around and a flower from the Boho Blossoms punch added on one side, the sentiment & spray is from Tiny Tags and punched with the Jewelry Tag punch. The flower at the top is made from 6 of the smallest petals on the Blossom Petals punch and 6 of the next size up, all in Pink Pirouette, with a circle in the centre. I saw the idea for this on Mary Fish's site, Stampin'Pretty, but my flower is very different from hers and much smaller. The petals were punched out and then I curled then round a scoring tool to shape them - I am pleased with how it turned out but it is very fiddly and time consuming so I don't think I'll be making many more :0) 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and come back tomorrow to see some really easy Disney treat bags.
