Watermelon Treat

Happy Friday!
One of my favorite things about summer is watermelon! I love watermelon almost as much as this little guy. Doesn't ice cold watermelon sound great on a hot summer day?

For my card, I stamped the tasty image twice, die cut one in an oval shape and colored the background. On the other, I colored the melon and cut it out to attach on the base image for a little dimension. A couple more layers were added and a big gingham bow (love the ribbon, but hate how easily it unravels). I put the sentiment on a die cut circle and attached it to a tag die cut before running the string through the bow. For the gingham button, I covered a plain button w/ double sided tape and wrapped it with some of the gingham ribbon. The finished card measures 5.5 x 4.25.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Stay cool and have a great weekend!
