A Fruity Inspiration by Laurel Beard!

Hi Bloggers!

Today I have a fun card to share with you from our friend Laurel Beard! She created this card for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Let's Get Fruity! Have you participated in this weeks challenge yet? It's the perfect time because Anything Goes!! I encourage you to also check out our Vintage Challenge Blog, or our Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog to join in the fun! (PS- randomly selected winners receive GIFT VOUCHERS!)

Onto the card-goodness!

Hello GORGEOUS! I love that Laurel didn't just use green and pink, she added texture and pattern with the stamps images too! Also, I'm a sucker for Baker's Twine, so I adore the cute addition of the tied bow!

To make this card, Laurel used the Silhouette Cameo to create the watermelon card shape and then used the Summer Seasonal Distress Inks to add the color! After using the Hero Arts Chevron and Lattice Background stamps, she popped on some Black Rhinestones for the seeds! Bling it up!

Ingredients:
