Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge October

Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Jillian Selwood

The lovely Sally Shaw of Sally's Stampers designed our sketch this month and here it is:

This was a tough one for me, sorry Sally, and I didn't like the first card I created so here's the second attempt.

Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge October 2016. Watermelon Wonder

I started with a base of Thick Whisper White and then a layer of Watermelon Wonder cardstock. Then I used two pieces from the Watermelon Wonder DSP stack, the text and the flowers. When I put the two strips of cardstock on my card I thought they looked a little lost so I added some 1/8" silver ribbon which I think lifts it. 

Watermelon Wonder 15-17 In Colour DSP stack, silver 1/8" ribbon

The sentiment is from the Garden in Bloom stamp set.
