Watermelon Poppies for Friday Mashup

Wait, what? Watermelon poppies? No, I haven't lost my mind, I promise! That's just part of the challenge Lynda has for us this week at The Friday Mashup, the colors of a watermelon......Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Basic Black and Whisper White.

As you can see I decided to use the Pleasant Poppies set. I colored the flowers with Melon Mambo and the stems were colored with Wild Wasabi. From the Bitty Banner set I stamped the birthday sentiment in Black StazOn and used the matching framelit to cut the banner out. The DSP is from last years color stacks and I used Basic Black with the pop of Melon Mambo in the middle. The layout was inspired by a Try Stamping on Tuesday sketch I saw on Pinterest (I believe its #96).

Lynda also wants us to use a wooden element on our card but I do not own any, so that's why my card doesn't have one, sorry Lynda!

I hope you'll come by The Friday Mashup blog to see all the great projects from the rest of the DT, and then play along with us!
