What If Wednesday...Sketch J112

Wow - I've posted three days in a row!  Don't be expecting this on a regular basis...lol!!!
Goodness, this week is already half over, come on weekend...

It's time for another What If Wednesday Sketch Challenge at the Repeat Impressions Blog, The House That Stamps Built!
Repeat Impressions 9010-W 'Watermelon', Flourishes CS, Amuse CS, Ribbon from Hobby Lobby, Glossy Accents, Spellbinder's Oval and Oval Scallop Dies, Stampin' Up corner punch, Dimensional Squares

This month is truly kicking my behind, so I decided to do another CAS card.  The image was stamped, colored with Copic Markers, cut with an oval Spellbinder die, and matted on a scalloped red oval, also cut with a Spellbinder die. The card is white CS, folded in half with a black and white dotted (yep, those dots again) piece of Amuse CS as the background.  The dotted piece was punched with a Stampin' Up! ticket punch.  The red gingham ribbon from my stash, was tied around the background panel and the panel was adhered to the card.  The Watermelon was then added with dimensional foam, and some Glossy Accents were applied for that juicy watermelon look.

I didn't flip the sketch, but I stretched it...I'm such a rebel :)

Hope your week is going well, and I'd love to see YOUR card in our sketch challenge at The House That Stamps Built this week!  The challenge details can be found there, as well.

I know that you are eager for me to stop jabbering so that you can go check out what beauties my fellow Rockstars have created for you, so without further ado...

Have a great day!

YUM! Jim and I have been eating watermelon (from the Farmer's Market) everyday . Some are better than others, but this week is yummy just like your card! I love CAS but hard to do, always seems like I need to add more. Got a little rain/wind at our house tonight, how about you?

This is delightfully delicious. Love all the dimension and how your gloss makes the watermelon "drip" onto the card. Great job.
