Thanks A MELON!

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's SUMMER officially today! So how about a favorite summer treat... Watermelon! Doesn't this look yummy? I am joining Laurie's Fabulous Favorite's CASE Challenge (I CASEd from Kelly Lunceford's Card Below). As You Like It Challenge is asking Summer or Winter Colors and I love the color combo of watermelon, bright pink and green just screams Summer.

Make Crafty Friends Q & A:
Q: Watermelon or Cantalope or Honeydew?
A: Me? Watermelon. I hate cantalope and honeydew

I inked my background with Distress Oxide inks and splattered the panel with water. I used Paper Trey Ink Thanks Dies and Stitched Circle and Square Dies to make my "frame" and the watermelons. I made the seeds with Nuvo drops and finished my card with the pun "A Melon" using Hero Arts Alphabet stamp.
