Sending You Sunshine

I've done a little bit of shopping again...lol! This sweet image is part of the new release from Stampendous. I ordered him and a couple others from Eclectic Paperie. Watermelon Bee just looks so happy sitting there with fork in hand, ready to dig into that yummy slice of summer goodness!

I was inspired to try this watermelon shaped card from the image. It was so much fun to put the whole thing together! I found this piece of Stampin' Up's Positively Pink (retired) card stock in the bottom of the drawer and paired it up with Basic Black and Green Galore. My button collection seems to be coming in quite handy lately. These are from American Crafts with some May Arts checkered ribbon tied into the larger one and a tiny strip of Positively Pink in the two smaller ones. I added some faux stitching to the black layer and I used my Stampin' Up Corner Rounder (without the guard) to make the scallops on the card base. I finished it off with one of my favorite A Muse sentiments.

Here's a card that I think would bring some sunshine to anyone's day! So glad that you could stop by...Toodles! :D
