Mambo Birthday

Did you survive your Monday!  Tuesday already!  Seems impossible.  Okay so I mentioned a few days ago that I had some professional pictures taken by a friend of mine (including makeup and hair)...I got a peek at them's a link to the blog if you want to see too....Heidi is awesome!  I'm sure photoshop is awesome too!  It was sure a fun experience and I can't wait to see what new opportunities Heidi will offer for mom's to get glamed up and have their pictures taken!

I decided to tackle the Dynamic Duos and The Paper Players challenges this weekend.  I know I'll be needing a card for a special little girl who's turning 5 very shortly!  Her mom is expecting her 4th baby very shortly and I want to make sure she has the perfect card for her daughter who wants a princess birthday party!

I love the Melon Mambo and Basic Black colour options!  They make me very happy!  A dessert choice of ribbon!  I should have had a second helping!!!  The black ribbon is hard to see.  I tried Melon Mambo and it looked funny so I decided to stick with black.

The Paper Players challenge was basically to take one of your favourite challenge from the past 100 challenges and make a card.  I have only played this challenge once (I think) so I decided to just pick a sketch that I really liked and work with it.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Melon Mambo
Stamps: Dress Up, Voeux Mignon,
Ink: Basic Black, Melon Mambo
Other:  Basic Rhinestones, Curly Label Punch, Adorning Accents Folders, Argyle Embossing Folder, Adorning Accents Edgelits, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
