Hey Mambo

Hello and welcome to another beautiful day for a color challenge.  This color combo is super sweet--literally sweet when you mix cherry and melon it's yummy.  Hand Stamped Sentiments is hosting this fun color challenge and you too can join along.  I mean come on.  You need to make a Valentine so go create one with these colors and post it over on the HSS site!

I started with a 6"x 6" piece of Melon Mambo and then folded it in half.  I used a Whisper White ink pad and swiped ink across my card base for a little interest.  Then I added a short strip of the doily lace tape from the Spring Catalog and a paper doily.  Again, I thought I had one and low and behold there were two.  For the focal point I punched a cupcake with the Create a Cupcake Punch and added a small greeting from Petite Pairs.  Since it's a girly type of birthday card I just couldn't help but add some sparkle with a sprinkle of Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  To top the whole thing off I tied the entire card with a piece of 1/4" Pretty in Pink Stitched Ribbon.


  1. It looks frosted and yummy and oh so girly! Love it!!



  2. LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS!! Seriously super adorbs!! I always forget about this punch until I see some genius like you use it and I think, OH I need to pull that out! LOVE YOUR CREATIVITY!

  3. Very cute! Love that doily as a background. Anyone would love to get this card.

  4. CUTE!! What adhesive did you use to apply the glitter? It looks dusted~ how how how??
