Ribbons, Pearls, and Girls.....

I love Fridays! Not just because its the end of the work week and I have the weekend to relax, but because its time for another Friday Mashup challenge! This week our challenge is brought to us by Holly, and the Mashup Rock Star  chosen this week wins an OPI Pirates of the Caribbean mini set. will get the Mini Set of OPI's Femme De Cirque Collection.

So get crafty and either make a feminine card, make a card using ribbon or pearls OR MASHUP the challenges and create a feminine card using ribbons and pearls! A random winner will win the Pirates of the Caribbean OPI set.

 I am sooooo not a girly girl so this challenge was a toughie for me! I'm more of a jeans and hoodie type of girl, rather than ribbon and pearls! I know Holly wanted to see some pink incorporated but I used some Rose Red cardstock...close enough right? I love flowers, and I figure *most* girls do, so I incorporated some nice flowery DSP that wasnt too overwhelming, and added the pearls as accents to some of the flowers.

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Baby Blossoms
Paper: Crumb Cake, Rose Red, Very Vanilla, Springtime Vintage
Ink: Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Very Vanilla ribbon, pearls, CB Swiss Dots folder,sponge



  1. Lisa, I love the flowery paper you've used here that pinky/purple goes beautifully with the cocoa. Very Pretty Cheers, Kasey ~ in Oz

  2. Lisa, this is just too darn pretty!! It's so simple, yet so perfect.

  3. See and you thought you couldn't channel your inner feminine side.. This came out great! I think the Rose Red was a great choice of color to use.

  4. Such a simple layout but so very beautiful. I love your use of the embossing folder, it matches the small polka dots on the DSP and the punch out.

  5. Lisa, this is really pretty! What a great challenge...I might have to check this one out! :-) Have a super weekend!!!

  6. I love that the rose red is a highlight color, not the main color. Very nice!

  7. Beautiful card Lisa! I love the use of your colors. Love those polka-dots and pearls too!
