A Hybrid Friday Mashup

This week's Friday Mashup sketch encouraged us to use something new.  

In addition to using the new set, Mixed Bunch, I created a hybrid card by printing the DSP from My Digital Studio.  The background DSP in Lucky Limeade and Island Indigo are from the MDS designer paper set, InColor Playful Patterns.  It almost has a 3-D effect...very cool! 

Few notes on this card...
  • For the top, I used the Adorning Accents Edgelits die, instead of a ribbon as shown in the sketch.
  • The Playful Patterns DSP is printed on Whisper White. I am so glad my new printer handled it okay!  Actually it is FAST! love it and I will be going to MDS more for DSP! So that counts (I think) as trying / using something new!
  • The Flowers from Mixed Bunch are layered on one of the pieces from the Perfect Pennants Die.
  • Just for Ann Schach, I had to add pearls.  
  • I did have a bit of a time figuring out where to put the sentiment, so I used something from the Just Believe set.
  • Don't forget to finish the inside! I always do, but usually don't show it....but here is a peek!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. I love this hybrid card! I'm a huge MDS fan... and I didn't know about this pattern at all. Thanks for highlighting for me! And thanks for joining the Friday Mashup.

  9. So cool! I was trying to figure out what embossing folder you'd used until I saw it was just the design on the paper. I love it! Such a fun card in some great colors! Thanks for joining us at The Friday Mashup.
