Creating Coastal Cakes


Today is the last Friday that I am on the Friday Mashup design team... and I'm the hostess this week! I'm so grateful to Holly for giving me the opportunity to be a part of such a fab team for the last year, and I'll be sure to pop back and play along with their future challenges where I can. On my last week I thought it would be fun to use one of my favourite colour combos from the SU catty...

Here's your Mashup Challenge:
  1. Create a project with the colors "Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate & Basic Grey."
  2. Create a project with a "Cake."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "with a Cake using the colors above."

How fab does that cake look?? For my card I used the wonderful Eastern Elegance dsp (my inspiration for the colours this week) as well as the Sketched Birthday set that I borrowed from Claire...

I used this week's Seize the Sketch challenge to help me with the layout...

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Sketched Birthday
Ink: Stazon, Coastal Cabana, Crushed Curry, Smoky Slate
Paper: Eastern Elegance dsp, Basic Grey, Coastal Cabana, Whisper White
Accessories: Smoky Slate chevron ribbon, dazzling details
Tools: Scallop circle punch, paper piercing tool & template

Make sure you check out the rest of the design team's fab creations this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
