Summer Fun!

The new challenge at Cardz TV Cricut Cardz Challenge is Summer Fun. To make a card for any occasion using Summer as the theme. To me, nothing says summer like a nice cold, juicy slice of watermelon. What says summer to you?

My card base is white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a dark green mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the yellow patterned paper mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I added a bit of  red gingham ribbon. My watermelon slice and its layers are cut from the Simply Charmed Cricut Cartridge at 3 1/2" and adhered to my card front with some foam tape. I added some small black nail head embellishments for the seeds. Finally I stamped my sentiment from the Cardz TV Fun in the Sun stamp set. I stamped the sentiment with some Lady Bug Memento ink on some white card stock. I cut the edge of the sentiment to look like a banner and inked the edges with the Lady Bug ink and attached it to my card.

I love summer and watermelon, such a perfect combination. I sure hope you will join us and play along with the challenge. Thanks for visiting.
