Lollie Christmas Lodge

Lollie Christmas Lodge
Just two more days until the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog starts and I am so excited!  So many beautiful stamp sets, cute papers and the Simply Scored!  I pulled my new Simply Scored out to make the lollie for this card.  Love the way it scores so easily.  Ladies coming to my card buffet tonight will have a chance to use it themselves.
For this card I chose to enter three challenges.  The first for the sketch was The Friday Mashup FM#21 and the challenge was:
So here is how we are "MASHING IT UP" this week
Create a project using the provided "Sketch". or Create a project that has a "Dry Embossing on it". or "Mash it Up!" and create a card using the "Sketch with Dry Embossing".  So I chose to "Mash it Up!" using the Sketch and the new Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.
Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder
 The next challenge I am entering is Cas-ual Fridays CFC #17 Their challenge this week is to use stickers(rub-ons are fine too if you don't have stickers) in your clean and simple design.  I chose to use the Season's Greetings from the Retired SU Chit Chat Rub-ons.

And the final challenge that I am entering this week is a color challenge over at In{k}spire Me Challenge #7
My free color I chose was Cherry Cobbler(my favorite).  The paper I used to make my lollie with is our new Frostwood Lodge in the new Holiday Mini.  This is my new favorite paper and I will be using it a lot in the coming months.   
I was just notified that I won runner up for this card and now I have a new badge:

Paper: Garden Green, Certainly Celery and Whisper White Card Stock, Frostwood Lodge DSP, Regals Collection Patterns DSP Stack

Great use of all those challenges together.. The color combo is great with that image.. I think this is going to be a very popular set in the Holiday Mini. I love the DSP they have to match it as well. Thanks for joining us at the Friday Mashup this week.
