Sending Sweet Summer Happiness

**I have lots of new listings for stamp sets for sale on my "Stamps for Sale - Updated" tab above!  Or you can click here.  Take a look if you have time!  Thanks!**

Hello!  It is definitely feeling like true summer weather in Kansas!  It is HOT.  So today I sat down to make a card that reminds me of summer...watermelon!  I must be in a summer fruit mood, because my card for tomorrow also has a summery fruit in it as well, LOL!

For my background, I die cut the BEAUTIFUL (and boy am I excited to play more with this die!!!) Lattice Flower Square Panel out of light blue cardstock.  I cut it so that it would create a border for my card.  Then I used one of the Stitched Scene Builder Edgers dies to create a curve for the bottom of my patterned paper.  I stamped the sentiment from the new Frantic Stamper clear stamp set Scribble Flowers #1 that is currently available for pre-order.

I die cut the cute Watermelon Slices die with watercolor paper.  Then, I used my water pen & distress inks in various shades of pink/red & greens to color in the slices.  I really enjoyed coloring them this way!  I popped out the white piece and added in a piece that had been die cut with white glitter paper for a little sparkle. 

Thank you for stopping in today!
