A Melon Daisy

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We have just returned from a fabulous 7 day trip to the Riviera Maya in Mexico. It was such a wonderful and relaxing time with my hubby and our son-daughter-in-law and 3 grandsons.

We stayed at the Now Jade Riviera Resort. It is such a beautiful tropical resort that spills into the Carribean Sea. The food and service was fabulous. We loved the 2 pools they had in the complex and the private white sand beach was wonderful. It was my first time in the Caribbean Sea and I loved the clear beautiful blue-green water.

We took an off site trip to a Xel-Ha. an all inclusive aquatic park. It is a natural aquarium water park with so many activities. My favorite was floating down the lazy river in a raft. The river receives a constant flow of fresh water and it's clear so you can see the fish in it.

Vacation has to come to an end sometime and now it's back to reality. But the memories remain and I have lots of photos. Now onto my card for today.

This one I made for the color challenge #439 on Splitcoaststampers. Kim was our hostess and she chose a great color palette with melon mambo, old olive and daffodil delight. She also wanted us to use flowers on our cards. 

My card started with my layout. This week I used the Mojo306 sketch. My background designer paper is from the Stampin-Up "green house gala" collection. I joined the 2 panels with some Stampin-Up pleated ribbon.

The circle is cut with a Spellbinders die and this designer paper is from Stampin-Up's "cheerful treat" collection.

I used the Spellbinders labels 18 die and cut in daffodil delight with the Cuttlebug embossing folder "kassie's brocade".

My daisy is the Stampin-Up  Bigz die "daisies #2". I also used a Cheery Lynn Designs die to cut my green leaves.
Punched a few butterflies with an Martha Stewart punch to complete my card. Well, that's it for me for today. So until next time.......God bless.
