Introducing... Melon Mambo

The next In Color 2009-2010 is Melon Mambo. I like how bright and girly it is :) Are you ready?
This is Melon Mambo/ Kraft combo that I made for CAS18 at SCS here. When I was exploring how I can make Melon Mambo different, I thought of pink stars (stars are usually either blue/ masculine type). It is OK to have pink stars, right?
My next card is a vintagey feminine kind. Lots of distressing, swirly background, hemp twine, stacked buttons and flowers. I love all the prettiness to it... and I love the sentiment.
This last one is a simple Melon Mambo with the classic black and white combo. Just a simple one that I am going to pop in the mail later today for a friend who is going through some tough time right now. Love that tree, too.

I hope you like these. Thank you for stopping by.
