Colorful Mail for Friday Mashup

This week at The Friday Mashup Tara has a color challenge for us.....she wants us to use Sahara Sand, Perfect Plum and Wisteria Wonder.

I won't lie...I hate the color purple, any shade of it, so as soon as I saw 2 of the 3 colors we were to use I cringed and had no clue how I was going to pull all of this together. Well, when in doubt keep it simple and that's what I did here! I spritzed some Sahara Sand on a piece of Sahara Sand cardstock that I had embossed and then I pulled out the Oh, Hello set from the spring mini. I stamped the oval in Wisteria Wonder and popped it up with dimensionals over a banner of Perfect Plum DSP that I put down. I stamped the sentiment in Perfect Plum and that is also popped up with dimensionals(even though you cant tell in the pics, the extra dimension looks really nice). My daughter insisted the card needed some bling so I added the 3 rhinestones at the bottom to finish things off.

Like I said, nice and simple and I used all the colors! I'll be mashing this up by sending this card to a good friend of mine :)

Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup to see what the rest of the design team came up with!
