PPA28: Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, and Basic Black

I am excited to share today's card with you because it incorporates one of my favorite color combination's: pink and black! At Pals Paper Arts we are hosting a color challenge using Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, and Basic Black.

Here are some tips for this card:
  • I really love the Night and Day DSP (Holiday Mini Catalog) but I don't actually own it. I used My Digital Studio to print off the pattern onto some Whisper White card stock.
  • The flowers from Fifth Avenue Floral were black heat embossed and filled using a blender pen, Melon Mambo, and Pretty in Pink ink pads. Each flower was attached using dimensionals.
  • I used the backside of Melon Mambo Polka Dot Grosgrain and a Pink Pirouette button (retired- In Color 2008) to add some final touches.
I hope you will also play along at PPA!
