Thanks a melon...

Recently, I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the winners of Taunya Butler's (Daisies Girl) many birthday giveaways during the 12 days leading up to her birthday on April 12. The little package that I received was chockfull of delicious Doodlebug products. I decided to use some of them to make a quick thank you card for Taunya.

One of the products Taunya included was the fruity Washi tape that you see at the top of my card. It was my inspiration!

I cut the word "melon" and my watermelon image from the Preserves cartridge. I added the "bite" out of my watermelon by using a small scalloped circle die. Some Diamond Glaze on the seeds made them look like real seeds!

Here's a picture of the roll of Doodlebug Washi tape and some pretty buttons that were also part of my prize package.

The buttons are in shades of orange - not quite the color I wanted for my card. But - no problem! I just colored one of them with a red alcohol marker and it became the perfect shade!

See what I mean?  The perfect color! A little green thread tied in a tiny bow was the finishing touch.

To decorate the inside of my card, I simply added a strip of that cute Washi tape. It was just the right touch of color and fun.

I'm entering this card into the Double-Click Skittles Challenge #20: Thank You or Teacher.  Taunya is a big inspiration over on the Double-Click Skittles blog, too. Check it out!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and remember to laugh--a little or a lot--every day.
