Piling it on a Color Throwdown #55

Hello Everyone! This week's color challenge over at the Color Throwdown blog really intrigued me! So, I just had to make a card for it! The colors this week are: Kraft, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, black & white. How fun! I have not utilized these new in colors much yet, so I was very excited to get to work with them. I also incorporated the challenge over at the Pile it on blog, and that was a hard one ... the challenge there is to use NO dsp and add one more challenge. Well, I LOVE dsp, so it was really hard to omit it on this project. Thanks for stopping by, leave a comment and say hi!
Here are the details:
Stamps: Shining Strength (sentiment) & Walk in the Park (CD stamps may SOM)
Paper: Kraft, Basic Black, Whisper White, Crushed Curry & Melon Mambo cardstock
Ink: Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Creamy Caramel
Tools: Labels 4 & Large curvy rectangles nesties, Word Window,
sponges, d'vine swirls embossing folder
Accessories: Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry ribbon, white brads
