Thanks A Melon

Welcome back High Hopes Fans! I hope you are enjoying the first week of summer! 
For me, there is nothing better on a super hot, humid day then some sweet, cold watermelon or cantaloupe. 

This week's post features "Summer Sweetness" - this cutie sure seems to be enjoying her watermelon doesn't she?! I'm not sure I smile this big when I have some but it sure does help cool me down. 

I started by colouring my stamp with alcohol markers and cutting it out with a stitching and piercing marks die. I used my Fiskars circle cutter to cut the cardstock circle to back it with. After cutting and scoring my card base, I added patterned paper from MFT and Echo Park. A white gel pen was perfect to add dots to her cute cheeks and hair bows. 
Some flowers from Prima and gumdrops were the perfect finishing touches to my card.
