In the end I decided against the first two cards that I made and whipped this one up in 15 minutes (very fast for me). Sitting on my desk was a scrap of melon mambo cardstock. I thought "pink and black" and "whoosh" there was stuff going everywhere and voila - it was done! In my haste to get it done and a photo taken I smudged the sentiment. Don't ya just hate that!!
Have a good day - thanks for looking.
