Melon Berry Birthday

Got a bunch of cards I'm trying to crank out today, so here's the abbreviated card description... note the fun birthday theme "postage stamps" included with my Cuttlebug I just acquired this weekend hehe. Worked perfectly for the theme at Stampin for the Weekend. And the colors matched a lot better in person than now when I'm comparing them on the computer *shruggs* whoops!

Materials- Paper: Recollections (brown), The Paper Company (cream), rest from my stash, Ribbon: cards inc, Brads: makingmemories, Ink: Martha Stewart, Stamp: Inkadinkado, Other: CB dots & spots, CB celebration stamps

Theme: stampin for the weekend #3 "Please Mr. Postman - by Marvelettes"
Sketch: the sweetest thing Sweet Sunday Sketch #23
Colors: Raspberry Suite #10 "melon, berry, cream, dk brown"
Theme #2: Die cut Dreams #2 "spots & polka dots" (background emboss is "Spots & Dots" folder, sentiment is circles, round brads)

  2. Such a wonderful take on the theme of Please Mr. Postman and your embossed stamps are fabulous along with your birthday greeting. These are set off so nicely with your embossed panel and this colour combo is delish.
