FM200 Our 200th Challenge ~ Let's Celebrate!

We are so excited to be celebrating our 200th Challenge at the Friday Mashup and we want to say a huge THANK YOU to all our fans who have supported us! In honor of our fans we are giving back with a 200th Celebration Blog Hop and some fabulous prizes from Ellen Hutson, Newton's Nook, Lawn Fawn and more!

This week's challenge is create a project using your TWO favorite Mashup challenges together on one project! We have two very special guests joining in the fun... Sandy Allnock & Jennifer Jackson from Newton's Nook have both created projects for us! Head over to the Friday Mashup for more info and to link up and hop along. **This challenge will run for two weeks.**

200th challenge, can you believe it?! I have almost been here for all of it.  I wonder when they are going to kick me out.  So, the challenge is to take two of the previous 199 challenges, so that would be four elements, and mash them up... or in my case, an element from two challenges and mash them up.  Oops!

Well, I really had a hard time picking.  I thought about making a card and finding a couple challenges that fit.  Or finding a challenge that stands out to me.  Nope.  Finally, I went to the highly scientific way of picking a challenge,  My two random numbers are... drum roll please... challenges #5 (nature/embossing) and #121 (happy/polka dots).  My mashup is embossing and polka dots.

I used Freshly Made Sketches #174 for my layout.

Stamps: Sweet Scoops; Paper: Sahara Sand, Whisper White; Ink: Calypso Coral, Sahara Sand; Accessories: Good as Gold card kit, 2-1/2 Circle punch, Scallop Trim punch, Decorative Dots EF, Large Polka Dot DSP, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

I love this clean design! The ice cream pops off that white card...perfect!

It's like saying "I am going to eat ice cream, no matter how much snow is on the ground!" LOL

Looking forward to all of the Mashups this week!
