Paper Players Challenge #52-Wild Melon Delight

This week at the Paper Players, Ann has given us a bright and happy colour combo!!! 

I decided that I needed to use my Fun Flowers Die and my Big Shot to create a large flower on the front of my card!!  I used some Melon Mambo DSP from the Brights Collection Paper Pack and I used a Wasabi Glimmer brad for the centre of the flower.  Each part of the flower is popped up on dimensionals.

We have had some GORGEOUS weather here and I took my card outside to be photographed!  The sunlight really highlighted the flower layers!! I embossed the white side of the card with my Finial Press Embossing folder and used the scallop edge punch to add a bit of interest down one side.

As you may know, I love my En Francais BG stamp...I inked it up in Daffodil on the strip of Daffodil cardstock.  I really wanted to create a fresh and clean card!!  It is another Thank You card for my stash and for all those lovely helpers in my classroom this year!

We hope that you will join the Paper Players Challenge this week!  Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!
