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:
