Mellon Mambo Madness

When I saw the new Stampin Up Gingham Garden DSP all I saw was Mellon Mambo.  I don’t have the ink stamp, but I love the bright and boldness of this color.  I went  thru my Le Plume markers and found Rose Pink very close to Mellon Mambo.  I wanted to make a happy card for a friend who has just ‘crossed over to the dark side’ of Stampin Up!  My good friend Melissa B has just gotten bitten by the SU bug after coming to a SU Club meeting with me and I wanted to send her a very happy card.  Melissa is an awesome Girl Scout leader who is confident and stands up for what she believes in and I knew the card had to do the same.

I used the retired Daffodil Delight stitched ribbon to break up the Mellon Madness across the middle.  I loved the little flowers which were punched out of Mellon Mambo and Daffodil Delight.  The sentiment came from – somewhere – LOL.  I found it in my stash and knew it was her.  The inside sentiment, that you can’t see is from Pursuit of Happiness – which always says so much to me!  I added some Daffodil Delight washi tape on the edge with a flower on top.  I think you should always add a little something to the inside of your card, so the recipient gets that AHH when they open the envelope and another AHH when they open the card!

I know she’s going to love it!  I hope it gives you some inspiration to send positive thoughts to your friends.

Have a Magical Day!
