Sweet Summertime

Good Afternoon!  Welcome to Friday!

Today's card is for several Challenges:

Curtain Call's, Watermelon Wonder; CASology's, Dessert; and last but not least, STV's, Mix It Up Monday.

I haven't made a card in almost a week, and seem to still have no time to craft.....Oh The Horror!  But I snuck in and whipped this CAS card up in no time.  Quick Card......Quick Post.

Very simple card.  I knew I wanted to use a watermelon yet I have no watermelon stamps.  So I used the circle Spellbinders die to cut 2 layers, one in Passionate Pink and the other in Jelly Bean Green, both available from Gina K Designs, as well as the sentiment stamp I used, from the Sweetest Strawberries set.  Added some "seeds" using a Sakura Black Gel Pen and topped them off with Cotton Candy Stickles.  I also 'splattered' black paint on the pink panel using an old toothbrush.  The watermelon is popped up with 3D squares.

Spellbinders; Lacy Squares Die, Cuttle Bug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Adhesive Pearls, Black & White Gingham Ribbon, 3D squares.

Short.  Sweet. Simple.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend!
