Summer Lovin'

Wendy has a fun Free 4 All challenge on SCS today - a theme to use something you love about summer! There's nothing more refreshing than a really cold, sweet watermelon on a hot day!  I saw some watermelon shaped cards on Pinterest and decided to try my hand at one.  I used the 3 largest circles in Lil Inker Designs' stitched circle dies.  I folded each one in half then punched the "bite" in the polka dotted circle.  The heavier cardstock layers were too thick to punch, so I outlined the "bite" with a pencil then cut out the area with a scissors.  The seeds are halves of the smallest heart punch...cutting them in half and rounding the edges a bit.  A quick itty bitty banner sentiment and this fun card was completed!
