Happy 4th of July Happy Summer with Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set – Pig & Watermelon card

Happy 4th Happy Summer One in a Melon card with Digi Web Studio Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp, by Paperesse.

Here's the third of my Porky BBQ themed 4th of July/Happy Summer cards made from one of the eight images in Digi Web Studio's Porky's Backyard BBQ stamp set (on sale for just $1!). Here is No. 1 Porky Grilling and No. 2 Porky Pickles.

I decided on a round card to echo the watermelon shape. Paper is Picnic Day by Sharon-Dewi Stolp available on Pixel Scrapper.

Sentiment is from my own silly sheet created just for these images. The green border peeping out there is from a Christmas pack (you know, Christmas in July kind of thing) and the button looking bits there are actually brads with the prongs cut off – the only way I ever use brads.
