Mambo suede

I've been having fun with the color challenge the last few weeks, but this week's threw me a little bit! Betty chose melon mambo and soft suede with neutrals of your choice. As an extra option, she suggested wood for an accent. I haven't fallen for soft suede and don't even own the ink, so I had to use it as an accent. I added the distressed stripe embossing to simulate the wood effect. I've been making a stash of cards for an upcoming Relay for Life event and this one will go in there. The card is 3.5 by 5 because someone gave me a whole box of envelopes that size!
Supplies:
Stamps: Fight like a girl - Flourishes
Ink: Memento rich cocoa; Copic markers
Paper: melon mambo, soft suede, shimmery vanilla
Accessories: EK Success punch, ribbon, Cuttlebug embossing folder
