Mashup Joy

Here's my first attempt at this week's Friday Mashup idea. Heidi is so right! I do hold on to some stuff! So I was thrilled with this challenge. I used the sketch AND I used some retired DSP (just because it's retired doesn't mean that it is no good... it's not an expiration date!) I also used some ribbon that is totally recycled. I have these pegs that hang off the side of my ribbon storage unit my dad and I made. I hang pieces of ribbon there that come from gifts or other places so I'll see them and can use them should the chance arise. I don't remember where this one came from, but it totally works on this card.
I have a base of Real Red, a layer of Sahara Sand, then I used 3 different patterns of DSP, and I finally made one of those fancy fold things. I don't remember what they're called. What I do know is that I bought a scoring board before Stampin' Up came out with theirs so I used my non-SU board to emboss lines every 1/4" and made this... rosette. I stamped the sentiment from Word Play. You can kind of tell I used my crystal effects on the ornament in the middle. Speaking of ornaments, I used my ornament punch and then I punched out 3 more in red and made a layer under the sentiment ornament.
Hope you like my mashup! Thanks for looking...

I really need to clean my glasses! I didn't see this one when I came in to check out the latest entries! *sigh*

Great card, love the rosette you made and the colour combo.

Thanks for being an avid player, I'm so glad we inspire you to create.

Ribbon bits is probably the easiest thing to use up, I think. I love that paper!! Very cute how you added the ornament inside the accordion flower. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup.
