Thanks A Melon

Can you believe that school is starting back already? seems like it gets earlier each year. Since summer is almost over I decided to make another watermelon card. I made this one for a couple challenges. The dare to get Dirty challenges over on Splitcoast Stampers and the CASology challenge of Juicy, because watermelon is definitely juicy and so yummy! 

To make my card I started with a top folding white card base and some bristol paper because I have found that the distress oxide inks blend very well on this type paper.
 I started by blending Lucky Clover at the bottom, then a strip of Twisted Citron and finishing it with Candy Apple, after i got it all the oxide inks blended out I used the Mini Scenery: Spotty stamp by Winnie & Walter. This stamp is the perfect watermelon stamp, don't you agree? To finish the card I cut the panel down with a stitched die by Lil Inker Designs and added the greeting from the Orange You Sweet set by Concord & 9th.
