A Feminine Birthday with a Splash of Color

This card was made for 2 separate challenges...

Seize the Birthday #1 - to make a feminine birthday card using their sketch

 Simon Says Stamp challenge - to use black and white with a splash of color.

My splash of color is Melon Mambo, and I used a SU! summer silhouettes image, along with dsp from the Making Memories Wedding stack. I colored the centers of the flowers using a blending pen and Melon Mambo ink, and added a snippet of matching ribbon. The image was stamped on a die cut using a SB labels twenty-five, and I mounted it on a panel of black card stock, rounding the corners for a softer look. The sentiment was computer generated and done with the SU! jewel tag punch and I've added another birthday card to my stash!

That's it for now, but thanks for checking in! Make it a great day!

What a sensational card, Carol! I adore mambo with black and white. I remember last year doing a card with this cute cow I have and MM. It's still one of my faves. Now this card can be another fave!!
