It's Juicy!!!

Hello again ladies, I'm the hostess again this week at Our Creative Corner!  This time, I thought I'd take it easy on you....no tricks up my sleeve....  I have another inspiration photo from my trip to the Green Market in Copenhagen.  

Imagine if you will - a Walmart sized building FILLED with fresh produce, ONLY fresh produce.  Boxes of cherries, nectarines, peaches, elder berries, mini watermelons, strawberries, fruit I had never seen before, the colors, the smells....amazing!  I took a few photos of the gorgeous fruit boxes, each little piece of juiciness just waiting to be baked into a danish....hee, hee....  
 
I had so many options for this, so many in fact, I think I'll end up making another creation for this challenge!  But for now, I wanted to make another CAS type card.  
 
I started with a clear window sheet and wanted the card to have a little surprise to it, like this one I made last week.  The doily has the sentiment stamped on it and it is adhered to the inside of the card.
On the outside of the card, I used my new PTI Melon fruit die and stamps for the watermelon.  It's hard to tell from the photos, for the seeds I used black Stickles for a little shimmer.  I added a little shabby bow and it's as cute as can be!  I think I'm going to make cookies to match these...now I just need to make them for someone 'cause lordy  knows I don't need to eat them.  Now, please join us for our challenge - it's juicy!

Beautiful, CAS at its best! The ribbon is a wonderful finisher and the inside surprise is a very nice touch for the recipient!
