Melon Mambo, Coastal Cabana, and Granny Apple Green

Who knew? Without this challenge, I would never have put these three colors together. However, they really work together. The combination of these colors are fresh and bright.

Here’s my card:


I tend not to look at the design team members’ cards when I open the page.  In this case, I probably should have done so because their cards are awesomely sophisticated.  Mine, on the other hand, is quite whimsical.  

The mats for this card are Melon Mambo topped by Granny Apple Green.  I used the bokeh dot stamps from the Beauty Abounds cling stamp set in the Ocassions catalog.  Love bokeh! Using Whisper White as a base, I started with the Melon Mambo and the larger of the two stamps to cover the white.  Next, I used Coastal Cabana on the small bokeh stamp and interspersed it between the larger dots.   The Granny Apple Green dots are actually the white pearl basic jewels which I colored with the Dark Granny Apple Green blend marker.  

Finishing the Front

After creating my own DSP, I cut it into thirds, and used my Coastal Cabana marker to color the edges of each of the three pieces.  Popped all of them up on mini-dimensionals, and put them on the Granny Apple Green mat.  Then I decided to add the ribbon, and thankfully I was able to slip it between the dimensionals and tie if off in a square knot.  I used two sentiments from the Incredible You stamp set, also in the Ocassions catalog, and cropped them using the Stitched Shapes framelits and the Layering Oval framelits.

I then stamped the inside bokeh dots, and the envelope to match.  And, ta-da, I was done.
