Flowers with Love

Hi everyone,
It's been an interesting day but a good one.
I washed this morning and hung it out on the line and then had to go to a lawyer's appointment to take Adrian and see about a personal injury claim for his accident. When we parked the car in town, it started to rain so didn't get a chance to take the clothes off and they have had to stay there as it has kept coming down most of the day and night.
A friend asked me to go to a concert in the park, a free one put on by our local council. She had seen them setting up and the weather seemed to clear a bit so we rugged up, took our folding chairs and LOL, there was not a soul there so we came back and picked up my OH and went to her place and had fish and chips for tea.
Anyway I came home and got stuck into making a card, here it is.
The basecard is called "Lipstick" from stash, the DP is from Graphics 45 - Domestic Goddess Collection, My Pretty Garden. The Nestie scalloped circle diecut is SU Pink Pirouette and the white is also a diecut. The sentiment is from SU set Well Scripted and inked in Pink Passion onto white card and mounted onto a "Garden Green" circle. The image from Penny Black set "Thinking of You" is inked in Basic Brown and coloured with Copic Markers. I added 3 black buttons as well to finish it off. I haven't as yet done the inside but will do so probably before I go to bed so I may add the pic later.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Perfect Sentiments Challenge 18 - Inspire with Love with a twist - a photo inspiration
I chose the colours pink, white and green from the picture and also the colours of the watermelon. The DP I have used reminded me of the skin of the watermelon and the black buttons the seeds.

I washed in a wringer washer, yes a wringer washer, and had to hand clothes out in the winter, and they actually had to freeze dry! :O) Makes you appreciate the sunshine, and yes, even the rain ... tee hee!
