Pink and Melon

Last week Melissa Philips shared another colorful inspiration photo from Leslie at A Creative Mint blog. The combination of pinks and melons and the contrasting patterns are perfect for spring when everything is starting to bloom. It's also a feminine version of my beloved Dunkin Donuts logo!! :)
I also used sketch #86 from the clean & simple blog. These were two quick cards I was able to create while my DH was grilling dinner. Love getting a few minutes of crafty time in after work.
Supplies:
cardstock: Club Scrap (white) and DCWV (pink)
patterned paper: Creative Memories (floral) and KMA (peach)
stamps: PaperTrey Ink and A Muse
ink: Clearsnap (frost white) and Close to My Heart (red velvet)
embossing powder: Ranger
circle punches: EK Success and Marvy
flower: Making Memories
jewels: Darice
foam adhesive: Creative Memories
