Shadowbox for Global Design Project #GDP081

There has been a colour challenge happening on the Global Design Project this week and I have just enough time to enter my project.  It's a colour challenge this week and the selection is Night of Navy, Whisper White and a free choice.

Well, that sounds easy enough doesn't it?  However, Night of Navy and Whisper White are such a classic combination I found it hard to choose which colour to add for my choice.  I quickly decided that I was going to use the Floral Boutique Suite, but I needed to think long and hard about what I actually wanted to make this time.

Finally, I decided that it was going to be something for me and that it was going to be a shadow box.  Melon Mambo popped into my head!  Luckily, I had some Baker's Twine in the right colour, but it was too chunky!  It separated easily and the thinner strand tied a more dainty, shabby chic bow to go around the distressed K! 

I'm confident that there are lots of other colours that would work equally as well as Melon Mambo...perfect as gifts for friends...projects for another day!  What colour would you use for your own personalised shadowbox?
