Quick Card Post




I have to post and run. My hubby has been gone all week and will be home soon (Yea!). I wanted to get this card up for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge. Hopefully Blogger cooperates with me LOL.

I embossed the background with clear embossing powder and then sponged Blush onto it so the design would show up. The watermelon is on dimensionals and for an added touch I put liquid glass on the seeds to make them raised and shiny like the real thing. I'm always needing birthday cards so this will come in handy at some point I'm sure.

Gotta run...

Heartfelt hugs,
Jo

It can be tricky getting away from the flower aspect of the inspiration. You've succeeded in making a great card with your challenge
