Colorful Childrens Birthday for Friday Mashup

Happy Friday to you all! Our abnormally warm winter in southcentral Alaska is moving right along into an abnormally warm spring...its supposed to hit 70 today! That's my cutoff for warm temps so if it gets any higher than that I'll be hiding out in the house :)

Today's Friday Mashup is brought to us by Holly and she wants us to make a project for a child using the following colors: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Wild Wasabi and neutrals.

I grabbed the set 'You're My Hero' for my card. I just bought this set recently and am so sad to see it retiring. Oh well, I'll still use it! As a former firefighter I just get the biggest kick out of these images! What better for a kids birthday card than a fun fire engine? I don't know too many kids who don't live to see the big red truck screaming down the road, siren a blaring!

My sketch inspiration came from the current Sunday Stamps challenge, it was a great sketch to use when incorporating several colors!

Come by The Friday Mashup and check out all the great projects from the rest of the design team, and play along with us!
