The Friday Mashup 200th challenge

Hi and welcome to my blog. The Friday Mashup is celebrating their 200th challenge with a fun challenge.... we get to pick from two past challenges!! Sounds like lots of fun!! Plus, they have some great prizes up for grabs.

Here is the current challenge info:

This week's Mashup Challenge:

Create a project using your TWO favorite Mashup Challenges together on one project!
  1. Use 1 element from each of your Two Favorite Challenges together.
  2. or Use both of the elements from your Two Favorite Challenges together

With so many great challenges to pick from , this was a hard decision to make!! I wanted to pick ones that I hadn't participated in before so these were my choices:

Create a 3D project or a project with butterflies. and create a project with ripped paper or fussy cute image.

I decided to mash the butterflies and fussy cut image for my card........

I used papers from Graphic 45 'Time to Celebrate" collection. I love G45 papers ... the vintage images are so much fun to create with. These are some of the papers I used for my card:
I fussy cut the girl, cake , flowers and butterflies out of the paper. I used my Spellbinders die to make the background mat behind the shaker frame and inked everything with TH Distress Ink in Pumice Stone. This shade is a bit more subtle than Vintage Photo, which is what I wanted to achieve. I added some sequins inside my shaker frame and a fussy cut Bday girl and cake to the outside. To add some glam , I added Stickles to the girls hat and flowers and used my Wink Of Stella markers in clear and gold to the butterflies and cake. Finally, I cut "happy birthday" from a strip and adhered to the bottom corner , and this card is finished!!! Besides all the fussy cutting, this card was fairly simple to make and I can't wait to give it to a very special girl!!!
That's my FM 200 challenge card.... hope you enjoyed it! Don't forget to play along this week!!!
Thanks for stopping by today!!
