Thanks A Melon

ETA: This card was selected as the Cup of the Week! Thanks so much Playdate Cafe. I am very honored to have received this award.

Happy Tuesday! I hope your week has started off well. Today I want to share a card I made for this weeks Playdate Cafe Challenge #93

This is what I came up with

When I saw the colors I immediately thought about watermelons. I started by using the Watermelon shaped card template from The Cutting Cafe. I cut the main piece from Stampers Select White cardstock and the layers from paper in this digi pack I also added some petite white pom pom trim from Sugar Pink Boutique, The seeds were cut out of October Afternoon Cardstock and covered with Crystal Effects. To finish it off I added some Raspberry Fizz Satin Ribbon, a black button and a Tiny tag that was stamped with the sentiment from Melissa Bickfords Fruit Fusion Melon set. I think these would make cute thank you notes for a summer party. That's all for now I will be back soon with more to share. Until then I hope the rest of your week is a great one and thanks for stopping by.
