Perfect Blend, the Dynamic Duo, and The Friday Mashup

 I had an uber-busy weekend.  I had several obligations, and I wanted to do them, but I also wanted to create some cards and had very little time to do that.

Add to that a very stressful couple of weeks at work and you have a recipe for a day off work.  And that is what happened for me today.  I took the day off and created this card for the Dynamic Duo weekly color challenge (Cajun Craze and Island Indigo) and The Friday Mashup weekly challenge (to create a project using ripped paper, or create a project with fussy cutting, or mash it up and do both).

DD gave me my color palette, and I decided to use Perfect Blend because it would give me my fussy cutting, but also because I am trying to put together a class that has 4 or more cards using Perfect Blend.  Now I have two cards so we'll see what comes next.
I stamped the coffee cup on Natural White in Early Espresso.  I used my blender pen and smeared the lines a bit.  I added a indigo DSP for the band around the coffee.  Then I stamped the lid of the coffee on Whisper White and popped that up.

That sweet cup o' joe is on an embossed strip of cajun.  I ripped both the top and the bottom of that layer.  Under that, I added a ripped and pierced strip of indigo.

In the bottom left of my white base, I added the sentiment in indigo.
Here's a close up of the cup.

Thanks for looking!

Very cute, Lisa. The ripped background matches the sketchy image very well. Thanks for joining the Friday Mashup this week.
