Birthday Wishes for Barry

A year ago, when my dear friend Alice was in hospice, I made a promise to her that I'd remember her husband's birthday for her. This past week was Barry's birthday, so I made a card for him.

It was my week as a guest DT for the CAS challenge on SCS, and since Barry is a guy, clean and simple was right what I wanted for him. With everything going on, my mojo has been seriously lacking. This card was the first thing I'd made in a month. My girls at All Things Unity came to my rescue, both with ATU#35, to use ribbon (or twine) and a mention of the Unity KOTM sketch challenge. Between those two, and the inspiration from CAS127, I came up with a card that I thought would make Barry smile.
Both the watermelon and sentiment are from the June 2011 KOTM, ...all smiles.
