Hello!  I got some very exciting news this morning...I was chosen as one of the "Top Three" in last weeks Create With Connie & Mary Challenge!!!  I cannot tell you how excited I am.  Often I get my inspiration from viewing their blog and am so honored that they picked my card.

Their challenge this week is to use the colors Melon Mambo (my favorite), Chocolate Chip and Lucky Limeade.  Love all of these colors.  Here's what I came up with:
I embossed the flowers with Melon Mambo embossing powder using the Mixed Bunch stamp set and then punched them out with the Blossom punch.  The center of the pink flower has a Filigree Brad - really like how this looks and it adds some dimension.  I finally used the newAdorning Accents Edgelits Die.
Two of the inside corners were stamped using Melon Mambo ink.  What a fun challenge this was for me.  I hope you like it too.


Stamp Set:  Mixed Blossom
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Whisper White
Punch:  Blossom
Extras:  Dimensionals, Filigree Brad, Adorning Accents Edgelits Die

Have a wonderful day!
