This is for today's CC to use Melon Mambo, Regal Rose and Pink Pirouette. This is a very pretty color combination, thank you Peggy!
This was a struggle for me as there are only two colors from the color renovation that I have not warmed up to. One is Pacific Point (and NO, I did not make a card for last weeks challenge, but I did try, for ohhhh I dunno, about 2 hours to no avail) and the other color is Melon Mambo... uuggghhhh.
They are both beautiful colors but they are very bright and I tend to go with Neutrals, Subtles and Regal colors.
Anyway, here is my card and you will see that I "hid" that Melon Mambo using it as a tiny border. But of course, my camera picked up that Melon Mambo and it just screams "here I am" in my photo!!
Hope you like what you see and welcome your kind views and comments! Have a great day everyone!

Robin, you are not alone. We all have colors we gravitate toward...and ones we avoid like the plague. I, too, like the neutrals, subtles and other "off-colors"(thought Sage Shadow was the prettiest color going!) You did a fantastic job with today's palette and treated Melon in a great way. (I hide mine in a gingham-stamped bg). Love your embossing and pretty stamped and die cut floral focal point. A beautiful card.
