Pals Paper Arts is hosting the first PPA Color Challenge of the year, featuring cards made using Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, and Basic Black (PPA28)! I love this color combo and love how the two different shades of pink just "pop" against the black card base! This card features pretty flowers that were made using heart and circle punches and showcases the various prints available in the Melon Mambo Patterns Designer Series Paper package. Pretty in Pink makes the perfect background to show off the pretty blooms and buttons of the same color accent the main flower and the center of the simple knotted ribbon! I cheated and added another color into the mix with hand-cut stems and punched leaves in Certainly Celery. A sentiment stamped in Melon Mambo onto Whisper White was added using Stampin' Dimensionals. The inside of the card was finished with Whisper White on Melon Mambo and features another punched flower in Melon Mambo with black accents, the perfect finishing touch!
