Ah CAS, long time since I have done one of these :) :) :) This week I have worked with the digi, Fruity Babies Watermelon by Scrapper's Delights.

I needed to stop colouring the digi part of the way through as I had a printed sentiment on the card which I had not yet printed and wanted to match up the girls attire with the same colour.
 Ouch - what a rubbish pic lol but hey ho it lets you see what I am up to.  With the card blank printed and cut to size I decided to use Spellbinders Grand Labels 1 as a template which I drew round at the right hand side and cut by hand.
 OK, now I have the green on the card sentiment at hand I can match up my Promarkers for her clothes.
Promarkers used
 Once all the colouring was done I used a smaller Spellbinders Grand Labels 1 and then coloured around the edge in lime green.  Next I added some organza ribbon and coloured a pearl with my trusty Promarkers to match the watermelon.  I also lined the inside of the card in lime green.
 And here we have the Keep it Simple card.
