Friday Mash-up Meets Color Throwdown

Hello there! I got home from my annual MAD trip on Wednesday. After getting the 'mundane' house things accomplished (and catching up on sleep!), I finally had time to play along with some challenges! Armed with a list of challenges I had printed out, I went to work.   This week's Color Throwdown color drew me in right away because they had some colors from my FAVORITE paper pack - Flirty (X7160B).  Note to self - Purchase another pack of this beautiful paper!!  I combined these colors with a sketch from Friday Mash-up for this card.

I added Pear cardstock to Flirty's color's of Goldrush and Flirty Raspberry.  A great combination!  
I used the new Artiste Cricut Cartridge for the banner, balloons and star.   The Artiste collection includes a stamp set that perfectly matches all three!  The banner is just the size for the Dimensional Elements - Banners that are ALSO included in the Artiste collection.   I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to make my scallop border.

Here is the Color Throwdown and Friday Mashup Challenges:


Both, Artiste (Z1790) and Art Philosophy (Z1686) Cricut Collections can be purchased ONLY through Close To My Heart and BOTH collections include 3 stamp sets, and 3 sets of coordinating Dimensional Elements.  These cartridges spend most of their time in my cricut battling out the usage time.  I love them!   
Don't have one or both?   You can order them from my website - HERE!
