Coloring Down the Lines - Melon Mambo Take Two

Thanks for joining us on the blog hop this week.  Our challenge is Melon Mambo - and since we had this color combo one before, this is take two.  The combinations are melon mambo, old olive, and elegant eggplant, or melon mambo, tempting turquoise, and daffodil delight.  I chose the first color combination because I thought it would be a little more challenging.  I rather like the color combo I chose .. it turned out pretty cool.

You may have come over from Carol's blog, and if so, I'm sure it was a nice treat.  Don't you like just checking out everyone's creation?  There's a lot of inspiration flowing, so I hope you enjoy the remainder of the blog hop.

Now, here's my entry for the week:

Paper:  elegant eggplant, whisper white, melon mambo, old olive patterned dsp
Ink:  elegant eggplant, old olive, melon mambo
Stamp Set:  simply sketched
Accessories:  perfect polka dots EF, piercing pack, basic pearls, candy dots, and  old olive ribbon

Now let's hop over to Joni's blog to check out what she made for us this week.  Thanks for stopping by, and your comments mean a lot to me.  Thank you for sharing your thoughts.  


  1. So, so pretty, once again, Helen! You are amazing... Keep it up, I love to watch your style in your cards. Hugs

    1. Thank you, Carol. You always make me smile with your sweet compliments. I

  2. Super, Helen. I couldn't make those colors work, but you "nailed" it. Beautiful card. I love the way you layered the mats and even turned one, and the extra touches with embossing and poking (what the devil do you call that anyway). Great job.

  3. Thanks Sandy. I was surprised I made them work too. LOL. So you like the "poking", huh? I believe it's paper piercing, & if it isn't, it sure does sound good. He heheh.
