Hi there once again!  My card today is for the Friday Mashup.  This week they had a fun sketch plus the opportunity to mash it up with a bit of spritzing or splatter.  I decided just to stick with the sketch for my card.

The oval shape was perfect for again using the So Very Grateful stamp set, this time the larger image.  It was stamped in Jet Black Stazon onto Whisper White paper, and after being cut with an oval framelit, adhered to a Labels Collection shape in Strawberry Slush. 

Deciding to use Old Olive with Strawberry Slush when coloring the stamped image led me to search through my retired designer paper, where I found this polka dot design from Sweet Pea Designer Series Paper Pack.  Always Artichoke was used for the base as it added a nice contrast against the lighter green.  

The Scallop Trim Corner punch was used to decorate the corners, as they were looking a little bare.  With the bow at the top, the sentiment was switched to the bottom of the oval and offset slightly.  On the inside, I put the finishing part of the phrase, plus a flower and leaves from the smaller image that I had stamped on a separate piece of card stock, colored, cut out with my paper snips, then glued next to the sentiment.

Well, that's it for now.  Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and I'd love to hear from you if you have time to leave a comment.  Have a great week!
