Melon Flower

Good morning, Friends! Well, we made it home yesterday afternoon. I was totally wrong about the whole "one more game and we would be on the road home" thing. The boys lost their first game but they did have a second game that they did win. And that meant they had a third game which they won as well! So we ended on a pretty good note there! Nick had a blast and gave it his all!! And we all got a little bit too much sun. I am feeling the effects of that now. I must remember the sun block for this weekend! So it's a day of laundry and crafting. And boy is it humid around these parts! Ugh!!

Today's card is a simple one. I adhered a strip of Twitterpated designer paper that has one end flagged to a piece of Whisper White. I stamped the greeting from Sweet Essentials in Melon Mambo and popped this panel up onto a card base of Whisper White. Then I stamped the flower from Mixed Bunch in Melon Mambo onto Whisper White and punched it out with the Blossoms punch. I used the same punch to punch out a flower from Old Olive. I cut two petals from the Old Olive flower and adhered them to the back of the flower to act as leaves. The flower is popped up onto the card. I stamped the flower center in Basic Grey and cut this out. This is popped up onto the flower. Then I added a grey button with some white baker's twine to the flower center. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
