Oh, Hello

A sad day.  On this particular Tuesday, in June, is the last challenge for the Nacho Average Challenge, #52.  At this point in time, the current design team is taking a break.  We are planning on re-starting, possibly seeking new design team members, and maybe changing the format.  Alot of decisions to be made, and some plans to be hammered out.  So, please check back and visit the Nacho Average Challenge site, to see what changes have been made.
Ok, onto the current challenge.  This week (#52) is a color challenge.  I was completely at a lost as to what to create with these colors.  But, all in all, I am happy with what I created {smile}.

when I saw the colors in this week's challenge, 
I knew that I wanted to use Melon Mambo as an accent color.
my card:

The card base is Bermuda Bay cardstock.  This teal color blue is rich and beautiful.  I inked my en francias background stamp with bermuda bay classic ink, and stamped onto whisper white cardstock.  I did the tap technique, because I wanted a random-ness.  I matted the text with bermuda bay cardstock.  
I cut a piece of subtler DSP (pool party) polka dot pattern paper and matted it with a solid piece of pool party cardstock.  I added some machine stitching along the border.  I wrapped a piece of pool party seam binding to the polka dot pattern piece.  I machine stitched this ribbon to this polka dot piece.  I tied a multi-loop bow.
For this round sentiment piece, I stamped the sentiment in bermuda bay classic ink.  I stamped the flower in melon mambo classic ink.  I used the 2 1/2" circle punch to create the round shape.  I really wanted to add a scallop trim, but SU! doesn't make a large enough punch/die.  So, I did it 'old school'.  I punched several 1/2" circles from the silver glitter paper and adhere circles around the circles.
Thank you for stopping by.  Please take a moment to create something beautiful and enter our last current challenge site @ NAC.
