So here is the "Mashup" Challenge by Lisa Runyon:
  1. Make a "Fall themed" project (it's right around the corner, people!).
  2. Or Make a Project that uses "Brads...lots and lots of Brads".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a fun "Fall themed project that uses lots and lots of Brads".
I created a card that uses brads, but not LOTS of brads...I need to use brads more, they are such a great accent!!! I inked up my "French Foliage" stamp set and combined it with the new "Pursuit of Happiness" word set.  I love it!  I wanted to create a corrugated look on my card, so I got out my crimper!  I used the colours Early Espresso, More Mustard and River Rock.

We hope that you will join the Friday Mashup Challenge this week!  Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!

  2. Fabulous card Lesley. I do love this set. I love the way you've created a curve in the background paper - and the bit of crimped paper on the inside too. Wonderful colours, wonderful layout. Have a great weekend.

  3. This is beautiful Lesley! Love the design, the stamping and the wonderful fall colors!

  4. Hi Lesley, Your inspiration card is gorgeous. I love the colour combo and like Holly and Kim you've used French Foliage a favourite set of mine. It's amazing how different all three cards are though.
