June Shoebox Swap - A Little Behind!

I'm playing catch-up.  I've been wanting to post the card I made for the annual SU! Demonstrator shoebox swap my up-line and sister (Debbie Naylor) hosts each year.  I love these events and usually stress over what to make.  This year, I knew the color combo I'd use as soon as SU! announced the new In Colors.  I've been in love with mint green since my middle school days.  Oh, how happy I was to see Pistachio Pudding!  It isn't quite my Mint Melody (retired long ago), but close enough!  I have been seeing a lot of Mint/Navy clothes combos on Pinterest this year and knew a mint color would be coming.  So, I had my colors set in my mind.  Then, this awesome mosaic stamp set and matching punch and embossing folder came out.  That was it - LOVE!  So, this is the card I came up with. 
 
While I was cutting out pieces for the swap, I looked up and saw the Crisp Cantaloupe ink pad.  What a pretty color too!  Well, I thought, why not try the card in this color too.  I liked it!  So, I put both colors in the shoebox and let the others choose which color they wanted to make.  Here's a picture my sister took of me with my cards.
Here's a group picture.  To read more about the day and to see what all of my fellow stampin' demonstrators made, please check out Debbie's blog here.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!
