Missing You

Hi and welcome!  Today's card was made to mark the end of the Friday Mashup challenge, which has been running for almost five years!  What an achievement!  I'm sad the challenge blog is closing as, to my knowledge, Friday Mashup was the first challenge to have a combination of challenge themes.  I've played along as often as I have been able and enjoyed each and every challenge.  Thanks to Holly, the challenge creator and the wonderful inspiration provided by the team over the years.  I tried to mashup this last challenge but only managed to get one bunny onto my card :)  I used the colors from Color Throwdown and am also linking to Cards 4 Galz and Simon Says Stamp, who are both looking for cute and cuddly.

As you can see, I flipped the sketch onto its side.  I stamped and colored the adorable girl and bunny from Adventure is Calling and put them to one side.  I then cut some green "grass" and adhered that to a panel I'd cut with Wonky Stitched Rectangles after stamping the sentiment.

The largest Wonky Stitched Rectangle was used to cut a white panel which was adhered to a white card base.  The diagonal was die cut with On the Diagonal die by Lil' Inkers.  Lastly I adhered the girl and bunny onto the smaller panel and popped it all up on foam tape.

Thanks for visiting.
