Melon Mambo Mojo

How about trying to say that five times fast! Melon Mambo's got to be my favorite new In Color! I just love the rich pink color of this new shade. It also coordinates really well with the Crushed Curry color - so bold and yummy together! Today, I'm sharing my Mojo Monday card showecasing some more Sneak Peek stuff from Stampin'Up!'s upcoming catalog. How do you like the little snippet of the card so far? Well, here's what this week's sketch looks like:I really like that the card is a "tall and skinny" this week. The dimensions of my finished card are 3"x6." It's fun to change up the card sizes every now and then. Are you ready to see the full card? Here it is:Hope you like it! I love the new Designer Series Papers that Stampin'Up! has in its upcoming catalog. The flower print DSP I used is from the Tall Tales Desinger Series Paper that coordinates with the Animal Stories set. The yellow polka dotted background behind the elephant is also from that paper pack - it's actually what's on the other side of the flowers. I distressed the edges using the paper distressing tool to give the paper that aged, roughed up look. Here's the recipe:
*Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry textured cardstock, Whisper White cardstock and Tall Tales DSP
*Animal Stories and Wings of Friendship stamp sets
*Crushed Curry polka dot grosgrain ribbon; Trio Flower, 1/4" circle, Wide Oval and Scallop Oval punches
Thanks for peeking in! Bye for now.
