A Melon Thanks

Sometimes I make a card and think, "oh well, it'll have to do."  Sometimes I make a card and absolutely love it.  Today's card falls into the "I absolutely love it" category. 
I'm posting today on the 3 Girl JAM blog, with this little lovely:
She just makes me happy with her sweet smile and bright outfit.  The image and sentiment are from Sparkle Creations. Her name is Watermelon Rin. The crinkle ribbon is, of course, 3 Girl JAM, and it's the Cherry Lipstick, from the Pink and White Bundle.  I used American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook 6x6 papers on this card.  The image is colored with Copic markers.  I used a Spellbinder Gold die, and sponged the paper with Tim Holtz spun sugar distress ink while still in the die, concentrating on the edges of the paper. The bow is popped up on a Vintage button, also from the 3 Girl JAM store.
That's it for me today.  I hope you can visit my blog this weekend.  I'm posting again tomorrow, and I have 3 posts on Saturday!
