Well I have to say, Watermelon Wonder isn't one of my favourite colours but it's included on my card this week.  I usually find it hard to work with oranges and earthy tones and have never been a big fan of the 2015-17 In Colour range.  Dare I say it, the only colour I've really embraced (and ordered a pack of) is Tip Top Taupe.  I might just have to order a pack of Mint Macaron too now that I have used it with the Oh So Succulent bundle.

You know how it goes sometimes, you have a great idea, you stamp and fussy cut and it just doesn't work out and they're left laying around on your work space.  This is how I ended up with some cut outs of the little elephant from the Love You Lots stamp set.  Never one to throw my cutouts in the bin (yes I know,should cull, but after all that work) I decided to use one of them on my card this week. 

I chose this paper from the Carried Away DSP collection which adds a pop of colour and provides the perfect opportunity to use some Watermelon Wonder as an accent.  This colour combination would be a perfect choice for baby shower where the parents have chosen not to find out the sex of their baby and the little silver hearts add that tiny bit of bling.

I decided not to waste the card below which was initially created as a background for my elephant.  It seemed perfect for a Valentine's Day card with a difference. (i.e. not red or pink)
