Mad About Mambo

Hello everyone, hope your day is going good. Both of today's cards were made using the new In Color-Mellon Mambo which is a pretty bright red raspberry color. The thank you/friendship card above is for the Splitcoast Stampers Sketch Challenge for today and I'm so happy that SU came out with a butterfly punch for this stamp set Flight of the Butterfly, it makes cutting out and popping the butterfly wings a cinch.For this On a Pedestal birthday card I started out trying to use Jen's Sketch for You to Try but my main image with the cake looked strange tilted on an angle so I opted to leave it straight.

Supplies: Flight of the Butterfly, Butterfly punch, Ribbon, Mellon Mambo DSP, Piercer w/mat, Scallop edge punch, Pop dots. On a Pedestal, Nestabilities circle die, Scallop edge punch, Square punches, Embossing, Ribbon, Pop dots. Colors: Mellon Mambo, Regal Rose, Chocolate Chip, Whisper White.

Is anyone else having problems with Blogger because I am?
