Dynamic Duo/Melon Mango... card 1

 This week's color combo over on Dynamic Duos is Melon Mambo and Basic Black.

I am pretty excited about the ideas I came up with!  I usually combine the color challenge with an other challenge, but I recently got a BIG Stampin' Up order, and I used my new sets for my inspiration.

This card was also inspired by some graphics at church!  I love it when that happens!!!  I stamped a Whisper White piece with melon using Flowering Flourishes.  Then I ran it through the Big Shot using the lattice folder.  I also used the sentiment from So Sorry set.  I punched that with a 2" circle punch and put it on top of a flower punch.

Finally, I added the black ribbon and some melon and black bling.
Inside the card, I added a piece of printer paper with a little melon flourish inside the card.

Thanks for looking!

This is beautiful. Simple to go with the sentiment, but the pink flowers add a touch of hope! So glad to see you at Dynamic Duos!
