Melon Mambo Friends

Good morning, Friends! I hope your week is off to a fabulous start! I cannot believe how the weather has turned! We were having the most gorgeous weather with sun and temps in the 70's! But yesterday we got rain (which I'm not complaining about) and the temps dropped down into the 20's!! We had all kinds of freeze warnings! And we even had blizzard warnings! Yikes! Thankfully it didn't snow around here! My poor flowers! They don't know what to do - lol! I am so happy for the moisture, though. And I am so happy that Nick's track meet isn't today - lol! It would be really cold out there today! He has until Thursday for the weather to warm up. And it is supposed to.

Today's card was one of four that we did at stamp club last night! What a most wonderful and FUN bunch of ladies! Love them all!! I love how this card is so bright and fun and yet has a muted card base. I adhered a strip of Sunshine and Sprinkles designer paper (with the bottom flagged) to a piece of Crumb Cake card stock that was run through the Big Shot with the Woodgrain embossing folder. Then I added a strip of Whisper White with the end flagged that was stamped with the sentiment from Sweet Essentials in Melon Mambo. The panel is then popped up onto a card base of Crumb Cake. On a piece of Whisper White I stamped the flower from Mixed Bunch in Melon Mambo and punched it out with the Blossom punch. I also stamped the flower center onto Whisper White in Early Espresso and punched it out with the 3/4" circle punch. I added a silver brad and adhered it to the flower. To the back of the flower I added two leaves that were punched with the Blossom Petals builder punch from Old Olive. I folded these in half before adhering to the back of the flower. Then the flower is popped up onto the card. Super simple!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
