Hello with Gingham and Banner

For today's color challenge - cantaloupe and pistachio - on the Operation Write Home Stars and Stamps blog.  To go with the soft and summery color theme, I chose a white sentiment, shadowed in cantaloupe, and a strip of white banners with cantaloupe and pistachio dots. 

Card details:
  • Card stock is Ellen Hutson white linen, Paper Source mint (light green) and coral (light orange), and the gingham print from PTI melon berry (light orange) pattern pack.
  • Dies are PTI wonderful words: hello and My Favorite Things party banner.
  • Colored dots on the banner are punched with a 1/4" hole punch.   
  • The angled green layer is cut with my paper trimmer.
  • Embossing folder is Cuttlebug Swiss dots.
Created for Operation Write Home, "supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them." (384)

Sweet card, I love how you took two seemingly unrelated papers and created a very cohesive palate. Crisp, clean and very striking!
