Mel's Weekly Challenge #4

My sister demo Mel sets great challenges every week. This is week it was a triple challenge:

1. Colours - Whisper White, Orchid Opulence, Barely Banana and Certainly Celery. She took this colours from a fabulous photo (see it here).
2. Technique - Kissing.
3. Accessory - Stampin' Dimensional or 3D Glue Dots

Mel doesn't do anything the simple way!
Here is my contribution:

The base card is Barely Banana textured cardstock. I used the Kissing technique to make the scallop border - I inked up the Paisley background stamp with Orchid Opulence ink and kissed it with the large scallop border stamp from All Scallops. The tulip is from Garden Whimsy - I used the Direct to Rubber technique with my Stampin' Write Markers (Orchid Opulence and Certainly Celery). The main image is mounted on Certainly Celery DSP. Both the main image and the tag are adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.
This Thank You card is going off to my Mary Kay Director. She organised a fantastic retreat and workshop for the unit this weekend.
That's it for now. I hope you have a great week.
