Autumn Wishes - The Friday Mashup Challenge

Whew! What a week it has been! I think I could lay down and take a nap and sleep until Friday. One of the teachers that I work for has been out due to her daughter breaking her arm last weekend. I have been filling in for her and boy is it hard work. I love those 4 & 5 year olds but they are a lot of work!!! I love how opinionated they are and how they aren't afraid to say whatever they are thinking. Even though it has been challenging I have loved every minute of it.

I haven't had much time this week to create like I want to but I was able to make this card for The Friday Mashup challenge. The colors in the sketch are not ones I would normally put together but it was fun creating.

Here is the Mashup challenge:

Here's your Mashup Challenge:

  1. Create a project with using the colors "Cherry Cobbler, So Saffron & Early Espresso."
  2. Create a project using a "Fruit Image."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project using the above "Color Combo & a Fruit Image. "

The card that I finally managed to design and feel comfortable sharing is not my best work but I am pleased with how it turned out. Fruit is not something I turn to when making a card so that on top of the colors was definitely a challenge. 

The pears are from one of my favorite stamp sets called Perfectly Preserved. It has the cutest mason jar look alike in it that I always find a reason to use! Mason jars are around every where you turn. They have so many different ways to use and decorate them. 

If you have any questions about the products used, just ask! You can also visit my online store at My Stampin World
