Say that one 3 times fast!
Hello everybody and welcome to Nonna's Craft Corner! I hope you are enjoying your holiday weekend. I've spent most of my day either upstairs in my Craft Corner or downstairs eating food I shouldn't be eating...it's been a good day...lol!
It's been awhile since I have taken part in a challenge and since I've had a bit of extra time this weekend, I thought I would join one of the fun challenges going on this week. The challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2 looked like a fun one to me! The challenge is to create a project using the watermelon cut from Stretch Your Imagination. I love pulling out an older cartridge like this one and trying to come up with something new!
And here's my card....
I love this hot pink and green combo...looks so summery to me!
* Paper is by Cosmo Cricket.
* Background mat - Elegant Edges (Oblong feature pg 37) cut at 6 inches
* Watermelon - Stretch Your Imagination cut at 5 inches
* Tag - Nestabilities - Ribbon Tag Trio 3
* Sentiment - Pink By Design Summer Vacation stamp set.
To punch up the watermelon a bit, I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder Swiss Dots on the hot pink portion of the melon. Can you guess which folder I used on the bottom? I flipped through my folders trying to find something that would mimic the rind of a watermelon...who would have thought....Animal Prints! I think it worked out pretty well!
I love this stamp!
I inked up the edges with lots of Ranger Ink (Shabby Shutters) and a bit of bling always makes me happy.
And of course, I had to use up my daily quota of pop-dots for all the layers....I should owe stock!
Ok, I'm off to link up my card.
Thanks for stopping by. I always look forward to your visit and your sweet comments!
Until next time,
