Sweet Birthday Wishes

Hi, everyone! This week at Lindsay's Stamp Stuff, Lindsay is sponsoring Tuesday Morning Sketches blog, in honor of their one year anniversary. The specifications for the challenge were to make a card based on a sketch from the last year, and do something that reminds you of summer. What could be more summery than watermelon from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff Strawberries and Watermelon digistamp set? I chose sketch 32 from TMS, some yummy red gingham ribbon and paper, and used Once Upon a Princess Cricut Cartridge (for the tag behind the watermelon) and embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots. The brads were plain brass brads, and I dipped the tops in shiny black embossing powder, hoping to be reminiscent of watermelon seeds. Thanks for visiting with me today, now head on over to the rest of the DT and Lindsay's blogs for inspiration and a FREEBIE!!
