Melon Mambo Mojo Monday!


I was kind of busy with other stuff yesterday, but I wanted to participate in the Mojo Monday 183 Sketch! So I made it a Mojo Monday Tuesday, if that makes sense?! I decided to go for a Monochromatic look too! - SO, how's that? A Monochromatic Melon Mambo Mojo Monday (on a Tuesday) - quite a mouthful!

I used lots of Sale-a-bration pieces - only a little over a week of Sale-a-bration left!! The flowery/scalloped edge piece is from the Ice Cream Parlor Papers (I really like those now!!); the little Melon Mambo flower is from the ribbon and buttons choice; and the HB stamp is from the Punch Bunch stamp choice.


Here's a closer look from the side of the card. I added a Polka Dotted Textured background, and a few layers with Melon Mambo and Whisper White. The striped Melon Mambo is from the Brights Patterns Designer Series Pack (I really love those too! I find myself going to them a lot for some variation of layers. - And a good deal 40 sheets for $20!).


And for the little focal piece, I actually hand-trimmed the HB square down and added a plain white Scallop square behind it. And for the Scallopy thing behind that, it's just two Fancy Flower Punches. And, of course, the flower button needed a rhinestone bling!


Thanks for stopping by,


Julie
