Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge featuring All That Scraps "Watermelon Abigail"

Hello and welcome to Loves Rubberstamps Tuesday Challenge!!! Hope you are all enjoying the warm summer weather and having a great week so far!  This week's challenge is a fun one! The challenge is to use a hoarded supply item.

Our wonderful sponsors this week are Eureka Stamps and All that Scraps!!!

Here is my card for this week's challenge...

This card features the adorable "Watermelon Abigail" from All that Scraps. Isn't she super adorable? This is another card which screams Summer, my favorite season of the year! I also love watermelon and doesn't this one look yummy?! :)  So let me tell you that my hoarded item on this card is the pretty red polk a dot ruffle trim as well as the white pearl flower trim layered on top of that.  For the ruffle trim, I actually have this in several colors and have all of them in my hoard vault for sure! :)  Actually, many trims that I have are in this vault because I just love laces and trims! LOL Anyways, it was nice to take it out finally and use it on this card. I thought it went well with the colors too. The paper collection I used is called Summer Fresh by Simple Stories. I think I've used this paper collection in quite a few projects recently because they are so perfect for the summer theme. I edged all of my papers in Pumice Stone which is one of my favorite distress inks by Tim Holtz.  I have a Spellbinders  peaking out which is called Large Circle Scallops. The sentiment also comes from the paper collection which worked out great! The cherry blossoms on the corner (also a hoarded item for me) is from Wild Orchid Crafts. I sprayed them up with my Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold to give them some nice shimmer.  Finally, I added some Kaiser Craft red rhinestones to finish off my card!

Other items used:
Black Tuxedo-Memento Ink
