pssst...thank you

It's Friday....yeah!  I'm so ready for the weekend since it's been a pretty busy week.  I think a lot of you understand that! :)  That also means I have a card to show you for the next Friday Mashup challenge.  This week's challenge is from Tara, and it was definitely a challenge until I figured out what I wanted to make.  Then it was a snap...minus all the water coloring I did.  Here's Tara's challenge for us...

Create a project with "Stripes".
Create a project with "Movable or Removable elements".
or Mashup it Up! and create a project with "Movable Elements & Stripes".

I don't think I've made any cards that have movable or removable parts.  I guess if I have it's been quite a while.  The stripes part was easy.  I new I wanted to use the stripes embossing folder one last time before it retires.  I really like this embossing folder and I'm going to miss it.  I guess I'll still have it, but it will be retired so I won't use it as much.  I went with a removable bookmark for the other part of the challenge, and made sure the card still looked pretty after the bookmark was taken off.  I did leave the glue dot on the card so you could see how I attached the bookmark...just a glue dot on the back of the ribbon.  Anyway I really wanted to use some of the new In Colors that are coming out on June 2nd, so I did a little water coloring with the Blackberry Bliss, Moss Meadow and Hello Honey.  I think they turned out pretty well, but inking a stamp and using the ink as a water color did give them just a bit of a different color.  Not enough that it bothered me though. :)  Oh, I almost forgot to mention that I used the Freshly Made Sketches challenge to come up with my idea. So glad it was out there! :)

Make sure you head over to the Friday Mashup HERE because the other designers cards are awesome!
