Paper Players Summer Challenge

I am making a few cards for my nephew (who is finishing kindergarten) to give to his teachers, and one of them fits the Summer challenge!  One of the teachers just put in a pool, so my sister is giving her some pool toys and needed a card to go along.  What better than Watermelon!  A true summertime treat!

I cased Mary Fish's fun card that you can find here.  I love her style of bold and bright creations!  I also used the set Mouthwatering for the watermelon image and paired it with DSP from Berry Blossoms.

The 2 1/2" paper punch fits the slice perfectly!  
Just as Mary suggested, I punched the seeds in early espresso using the BLossom Bouquet Triple Flower punch. 
The outside as well as the inside sentiment were printed using MDS.
The outside sentiment was die cut using a Itty Bitty Banner die.

I thought it may be easier to help my nephew along with the sentiment, so I added one inside for him.  I have two other cards I am making and will post those tomorrow....MDS has come to my rescue on one of them!  I love having that option when I don't have the stamps..or in this case, the set I needed retired but I still had the corresponding DSP!

stamps:  Mouthwatering;  sentiments created in MDS
cardstock/DSP:  Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, Berry Blossoms
inks/markers:  Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade
tools:  Itty Bitty Banners Die, 2 1/2" circle punch
