Pals Paper Arts

I have been away for a while but now I am ready to get busy with the new year.  Today's project was made using the Pals Paper Arts challenge.  This challenge uses the color combination of Melon Mambo, Basic Grey, and Basic Black. It is so striking and just beautiful.

I recently ordered the First Edition Specialty paper but had not used it yet.  This was the perfect project to team the First Edition DSP and the brand new Hearts a Flutter bundle from the Spring Catalog.

The card base is made from a piece of 8 1/2" X 5 1/2" Basic Black.  A 4" X 5 1/4" piece of First Edition Specialty paper is layered over the card base.  The Black and Very Vanilla striped paper is from the Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.  It makes a cute scalloped canopy across the top of the card.  The Hearts a Flutter stamp set and "Love you" sentiment add just the right touch to complete the card.  

Here is another version. Which do you like the best?
