Fab Friday’s color challenge this week was to use Melon Mambo, Flirty Flamingo, and Lemon Lime Twist.  Not the first 3 colors I would put together but that’s what makes it a challenge, right?  Melon Mambo and Lemon Lime Twist – that works.  Flirty Flamingo and Lemon Lime Twist – that works as well.  Put the three together, and I decided I also needed to include Basic Black to tone things down a little and to make the die cuts pop on the Flirty Flamingo DSP.

I love this In Color DSP!  I am still working on some retired colors of this style and, for some strange and unknown reason, I ordered 2 stacks of the 2016-2018 In Color stack.   I need to start really using more of this paper!

I also used the Sunshine Wishes thinlit set.  I was sitting staring at the Melon Mambo base, the layer of Basic Black, the Flirty Flamingo DSP and a piece of the Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.  Literally just staring at it, and then it hit me to use this die set.  That’s when I decided I also needed to layer the Lemon Lime Twist on the black for the flower, sentiment, and butterfly (yes, I looked up sample cards on Pinterest to make sure I wasn’t the only one who saw a butterfly).  All three elements are popped up with mini-dimensionals that I cut in half.  (Hint:  use the SU paper piercing tool to pick up and place down all those cut up minis.  Believe me, it’s easier!)

I added the Flirty Flamingo ribbon, layered all my pieces together and then I sat and stared at the card I created.  I was very happy that the picture I had in my head actually came out better than I thought, at least to me.  This was one of those cards that, when finished, I thought “Blast!  I did that!”

Here’s my card:#GDP099

  1. Very pretty! I like how the back layer of black makes the die cuts pop! And I definitely think it’s a butterfly too though I guess it could be a flower also?? Thanks for sharing at Fab Friday!


  2. Very lovely! I used a touch of black on mine, too – I thought of this as the “smoothie” challenge, lol. Great job in your paper and die choices – I love it! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
