Watermelon Slice Card

Hello everyone!  Welcome to this week's Bitten by the Bug 2 challenge.  I challenged the design team to use a Cricut Watermelon cut on their projects this week.  I am loving all of the wonderful summer fruit and vegetable, especially one of my favorites - Watermelon.  So I thought, hey, let's have a watermelon challenge!

I used three Cricut Cartridges to create this fun card:  Bag Toppers - Summer, Art Philosophy, and Nate's ABCs.   I cut my basic watermelon card using the Bag Topper cartridge.  I added dots to the seeds and dashes to the cute scalloped watermelon rind.  I used Nate's ABCs to cut eh three ants, flipping one backwards.   I cut a rose using Art Philosophy for the center of my ribbon bow.

I confess that this is a more simple card than I normally create.  But in this case, simple was good!! We had a very busy weekend at our house with Ian coming home and Aaron & Crissie's celebration. 

I hope that each of you will go by the Bitten by the Bug 2 blog and check out the adorable projects my design team sisters made this week.  So inspiring.  And then we would love it if you would join us in this week's Watermelon challenge. 

I will be back this week with details on a couple of crafts I made for Aaron and Crissie's party. 

Thanks for stopping by today.
