Strawberry and Watermelon Wonder Birthday!

Hello Stampers and Friends!
Today's card is based on an old sketch from a group
under Connie Stewart called
Stampin' Gals Gone Wild.
Every Friday a new challenge is put out for the 'Gals'
and any other Stampers to join in on the challenge.
It's to get the mojo going!
I love the feel of Summer on this card!
It was up to 75 degrees I was in the mood!

Here is my card:
Doesn't this look 'Fresh'?
The card base is 'Whisper White' card stock.
The mat is 'Watermelon Wonder'
The DSP is from the "Tasty Treats' Specialty DSP.
The greeting is stamped in 'Pear Pizzazz' and is from the
'Balloon Adventures' stamp set.
The Strawberry is colored with 'Watermelon Wonder' and
'Pear Pizzazz' Stampin' Write Markers.
The Strawberry is from the retired 'Tart &Tangy' Stamp Set.
The ribbons are the 'Dotted Lace Trim' in 'Watermelon Wonder'.
The 'Whisper White' Taffeta 3/8" Ribbon is tied around the mat,
over the 'Dotted Lace Trim'.
The squares from the 'Shaped Thinlits' were used
to cut out the square mats that hold the
'strawberry' with the greeting.
Those are in 'Pear Pizzazz' and 'Whisper White' card stock.
I popped up the greeting 'squares' with 'Stampin' Dimensionals'.
Here is the simple inside...lots of space for a personal note
you can write for the recipient of this card!
The inside Sentiment is stamped in 'Watermelon Wonder'
the stamp is from the 'Party With Cake' stamp set.
Here is the card with it's stamped to match
'Medium Size Envelope'
The 'Strawberry' was colored again with the
'Watermelon Wonder' and 'Pear Pizzazz'
Stampin' Write Markers and then stamped onto the
'Medium Size Envelope'.
Isn't this cute?
 A great feminine card or could be a great little girl's card too!
On a side note,
When I read something that touches me,
I will post it at the bottom of my blog.
It may be something spiritual, or a food for thought,
or just something funny. I will call them C-notes.
Here's today's C-note... 
If you are standing there at the fence and you see
 that on the other side, the grass is greener.
Maybe the Holy Spirit
is telling you to water your grass!
Until the next Post...Blessings and Refreshing to you ALL!
