A Boot-iful Mashup

 This week's challenge over on The Friday Mashup is a color challenge (Rich Razzleberry, Pool Party, and Daffodil Delight).  You could also do the paper piecing technique.  Or you can Mash-It-Up and do both...and that's just what I did!

I knew I wanted to use my new Bootiful Occasions stamp set.  The Pool Party lent itself to the boot with the rain clouds.  I stamped it on scraps of pool party and colored the clouds in with my stampin' markers.  Then I cut the boot out. This one I colored Daffodil Delight.  On the one below, the clouds are Rich Razzleberry... very different, I know.
I used the framelits and cut one in Whisper White and a bigger one in daffodil.  I used a strip of razzleberry along the bottom and used two different edgelits to add a little something to the strip.  The bottom layer is white and that is embossed with the fan folder.  I thought it looks a bit like clouds when you face the fans down.  Finally, I added a ribbon on each card, one in daffodil, one in razzleberry.

I didn't have a vision for what I wanted this card to look like when I started.  I am not sure that I love it, but I do like it.  Thanks for looking!
