Frisky Melon!!


 I made this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog's Challenge Me Monday Contest!!  Yay!! 
I started with a piece of pink cardstock cut at 5 1/2"x 8 1/2" and folded it in half for the base of my card.  This was from one of The Paper Company's value packs.  Then I cut a piece of black cardstock, also from The Paper Company, at 5 1/4"x 4" and used it as my first layer.  I attached this using my ATG gun.
For my second layer I cut a piece of paper from the Colorbok Pattern Pack at 5"x 3 3/4".  I then wrapped a piece of grosgrain ribbon around it and secured it in the back using regular tape.  Then I attached the whole thing using my ATG gun.  
I cut the watermelon at 4" using the "Stretch Your Imagination" cartridge with my Cricut Expression.  I used a black, pink and green paper, all were from The Paper Company value packs.  I attached it to the card using 3D-Dots.
Then to finish off this card I added a My Pink Stamper stamp from her "Birthday Crazy" set using a Stampin Up! Classic, Basic Black, ink pad.

I really hope that everyone enjoys this card as much as I enjoyed making it!!!

Happy Crafting!!!!
