Hello and welcome back! Today is a special day over at the TGIF Challenges Blog. It's our 100th challenge! Isn't that amazing. To help celebrate this fact, we are highlighting the blog's founder Mercedes Weber. Mercedes has fabulous style, mixing in lots of layers, shabby chic goodness and fun details.
I chose to copy this card from Mercedes' blog. I loved the bold stripes in the background, the layers with a doily, flower and circle greeting, and the banners as well. So, I copied those elements. I used the Cool Treats suite of products which are some of my favorite products from this Occasions catalog! I used the Crumb Cake striped paper from the Neutrals paper pack, over a layer of Peekaboo Peach Cardstock as the background. I covered the stripes with a layer of vellum to tone them down just a bit. Next, I layered a Watermelon Wonder doily, and a piece of the cute strawberry/cherry patterned paper from the Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies.
