Timeless Tuesday #131

It's Tuesday once again, so that means another Timeless Tuesday challenge we have to share with you! This week Heather is our hostess, and she has a fabulous recipe challenge for you! You must use pink, one button, ribbon and lace on your creation! Anything else goes!

For my card, I chose to use the newly released Wild for Watermelon stamp set. Smiley from millan.net I simply adore this stamp set, and thought it would be fun to give my watermelon wedge a pink-tinge instead of red to better match my card. My watermelon is colored on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock with Copic markers (the Dogwood and Green Grass collections). I colored an extra "slice" of the watermelon and mounted it on pop-dots for added dimension. My card layout is based on Heather's Watermelon card from last week! I just loved the "frame" she added behind her watermelon image and the layout of the card!
If you like this stamp set, and all the other newly released sets, (Wild for Watermelon, Hollyhocks, Italian Garden, and Sweet Days of Summer) you'll want to hurry because this is your last week to pick up the whole New Release Bundle at 10% savings! This offer is only good until Saturday, so don't wait!

I am so glad you like my watermelon card from last week. I think yours is stunning girly. The coloring and pretty paper along with the gingham ribbon is amazing. That LO is one of my favorites for a horizontal card. I have used it many times...it works so well with many images too. :)
