Watermelon Season

One of my favorite summer fruits is watermelon...yum!  Around here...summer means the sun is shining, the grass is green (well...ok...the weeds are green in my yard), and the watermelon is sweet.

I've added Daisy Bouquet in the backdrop.  The ribbon is some miscellaneous scrap...not sure where it came from.  the background was embossed with Birds and Swirls from Cuttlebug. 

 The circle was die-cut then trimmed to fit the mat.  I used one of the new sponges that I received from Melissa called "lil' inkers" (love, love, love them!!) and inked up my paper with aqua ink then stamped the bottom with a stamp from Background Basics 1.   The watermelons, from the Fruit Medley set, were colored with Promarkers and the base was paper pieced with some green scraps I had hanging around.  I added You're So Fine glitter using Scrap Happy Glue and added dimensional adhesive to pop them up.  The Fruit Medley set also has a great sentiments to go with the different fruit, but Fabulous Phrases or Just Because would also make great additions to this card.
