Mint & Melon

Hey there!!

Today i have a card that i made for Seize the Sketch, i also used the colors Mint & Melon and am entering it in Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking March Gallery Challenge.

Here is the sketch i followed:

I used The Alley Way's Spotted stamp set to stamp the background. I followed the sketch by stamping melon on the right and mint on the left. I also stamped a panel in grey using a stamp from the set.

I used a die cut circle, stamped my sentiment and then adhered it to my card base. I layered the grey spotted panel over the circle with foam dots. Next i added a strip of white cardstock over the grey panel and notched the end.

Last i die cut some tiny flower. To make sure my flowers matched my colors i used a couple scraps and inked them up with the same ink i used on the background. Then i cut them out and adhered them together in a cluster on my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
