Shapely Girls for Friday Mashup

Hahaha, did that title have you scratching your head? I was trying to be creative when introducing this weeks Friday Mashup challenge, which is brought to us by Erica this week. She wants us to use hexagons on our project and also make it girly...she is mom to 3 girls so she knows all about girly things!

Now I have a daughter, and she is the complete opposite of me because yes, she is girly and I am not! I am a huge tomboy and I admit it, I have a hard time coming up with projects that are supposed to be feminine. I usually make something with pink but with this card I promised myself I would stay away from that color (mainly because I hate the color pink LOL)

For the layout my inspiration came from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches. I haven't played along in a while and really like the sketch Rita has for us so I thought now would be the perfect time.

I included hexagons by using the DSP, which has them, and also by embossing the panel behind the main image. In the picture the Very Vanilla panel really stands out but in person it looks really nice against the DSP. Both the image and the panel with the embossed hexagons are popped up with dimensionals.

Some people may not agree with me but I thought this card was pretty girly, with the colors used and then the ribbon along the side. Girly for me anyway I guess LOL

Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup to check out what the rest of the design team came up with, and then play along with us.

  1. Create a project using "Hexagons".
