You're the Best for Friday Mashup

It's my turn to host the challenge at Friday Mashup and I've got some nature inspired colors....Cajun Craze, Garden Green and Island Indigo (you don't have to use SU colors, use any brand that is close to these shades). I'm also going for a Father's Day theme since Father's Day is next weekend.

I had every intention of doing an outdoor scene with these colors but somehow I gravitated to the set Be the Star instead. I'm not quite sure how that happened but I went with it LOL

I stamped 2 stars from the set, the biggest star in Island Indigo and then the medium size one in Garden Green. I then used the Star Framelits to cut stars out in each of the colors.

The card base is Island Indigo and I embossed a panel of Whisper White with the retired Houndstooth TIEF and adhered my stars to that, popping up the large Island Indigo star over the smaller ones. To finish off the card I took a sentiment from the retired set Best Dad Ever and stamped that in Cajun Craze at the bottom of the card.

Head over to The Friday Mashup blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then I hope you'll play along with us!
