Bold Brights Thursday Challenge!

Good Afternoon Everyone!!!! I didn't think I would get a chance to do another challenge, but I actually had a little bit of time. The weather is beginning to fade away with thunderstorms. It was such a beautiful day here in Ohio...a little hot but I take that over cold any day. My card I did is for the WT224 challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. It was to use brights in your card...Well the new in-color Melon Mambo I find very bright and cheery and I thought it looked awesome with brilliant blue. I really like how this Bold Bright card turned out. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak. I hope everyone has a Happy Thursday!!

Here's the recipe

I used Stamp Set Upsy Daisy from SU and stamped in Brillant Blue Ink
Setiment I stamped in Momento Black and it is from the SU set Really Retro
Brillant Blue cardstock ran through the cuttlebug with a polka dotted embossing plate
Basic Black Cardstock
Whisper White Cardstock
Melon Mambo Cardstock
Melon Mambo Ribbon stapled and attached a button and thread
SU Scallop edge punch
Marvy Circle and Scallop punch
Martha Stewart Butterfly and added black glitter glue for body
I added a row of bling on the top of the card
