Thanks a Melon

Here is a super fun and summery card for you today! It is a 4 1/4"x5 1/2" card. I used a green polka dot paper for the card base. The pink layer is 4 1/8"x5 3/8" and the striped layer is 4"x5 1/4." I stamped my sentiment, which is from My Pink Stamper, in black in on the striped paper. The watermelon is from Preserves and I cut it at 3 1/4." I used patterned papers from K&Company for the green and red parts of the watermelon. I added glossy accents to the seeds and, boy, do they look real! I pop-dotted the watermelon and finished off the card with some black buttons, one of which I tied with pink embroidery floss bow. I think it is the perfect summer thank you card!
I made this for the following challenges:
