Friday MashUp Fan Favorite Entry

I am a newbie to the Friday MashUp Blog. But it has risen near the top of my list of favorite challenge blogs! They are accepting "mashup" ideas from fans and will feature one as an upcoming challenge.

I'm itching for fall to officially arrive. But recent weather has hinted of it, and football has begun! So, that led me to my idea... (though I'm really not even a sports fan, go figure)!

My Mashup Challenge, would be to:
1. Create a " Sports-Themed" project.
2. Create a project using " the colors of your favorite team (pro, college, high school, little league...)".
3. Or "Mash it Up!" and create a " sports-themed" project that uses "the colors of your favorite team"!
** if you don't have any favorite team, google NFL team flags and pick a color combo that strikes you!

I made two cards - both football since that is on my mind. This first one is in honor of our nephew who is a senior this year and captain of his football team the Wildcats. Their team colors are orange and black. We, the whole family, are rooting for him and hoping he has a fantastic, fun, injury-free season! :)

Stamp Sets: Just Football, Fall Flair
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, Soft Suede, Basic Black, VersaMark
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White, Going Gray? (retired SU! color), Confetti White
Tools: Black EP, heat tool, distressor tool
Embellishments: Designer Buttons Brights Pumpkin Pie

I also made one for the most revered team in this household: Penn State. :)

Stamp Sets: Just Football, Sporting
Ink: Soft Suede, Night of Navy, VersaMark
Paper: Garden Green, Whisper White, Night of Navy
