Crisp Cantaloupe Birthday Wishes

While playing around with my SU! flower shop stamps and matching pansy punch, I came up with this summery birthday card. I used the SU! In color of crisp cantaloupe to stamp & punch the flowers, and added a piece of coordinating dsp. The flower centers were done with a punch-a-bunch, and I added some orange gemstones from Pizzazz Aplenty. The decorative black border was done with a SU! punch, and the sentiment is from SNSS. The flourish is by Cheery Lynn.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a wonderful Monday!

Oh Carol this is so very pretty and refreshing just like a cantaloupe. I love this color with the black. it's just stunning. Outstanding job with the flowers, I'll have to play with my stamps and punches to copy. A very busy day today, but maybe we can connect later on in the week. Miss you

Carol, your card is exactly the way a card should look if you're using crisp cantaloupe, which OMG, doesn't that sound good right now?!! This sweet card is crisp and flawless and I think I can even CASE this with the NBUS I have, so thank you!!
