Fan Fav at the Friday Mash Up ...

On a weekend full of challenges it would not feel right to skip the Friday Mash Up Challenge, especially this week as it is the first Fan Favourite. A little congratulations to Teresa Kline for her mash up being chosen.

The challenge this week is to ...
  1. Create a "hand made flower or flowers" on your project
  2. Create a project using "turquoise, red and black"
  3. Or Mash It Up and create a project with hand made flowers that uses red, turquoise and black.
My project for this week is a side step card inspired by Marion Benfield who is a fellow Stampin' Up! Demonstrator.  One of the things I love about being a demonstrator is the support and inspiration I get from other demonstrators, it really is a great community.  While her original card is stunning I immediately knew I wanted to CASE it using a side step layout, and super perfect that it has a hand made flower!  I used a Basic Black circle as a background for the flower to make it "pop".

Here is Marion's original card ...

Don't forget to pop over to Friday Mash Up and leave some comments for the design team and other creators.  I too love to hear what you think of my creations.

Happy Stamping
