Thanks A Melon

I had to play with my Simply Charmed cartridge---I'm not completely sure I love all the faces but I'm hoping once I get my Gypsy I will be able to omit the faces completely!  I do love many of the options on this cartridge.  This card was one I created for ABC Challenge and Cricut Cardz Challenge.  The theme for the ABC Challenge is P is for Pearl-- I love using pearls on my cards!  And the Challenge at Cricut Cardz was to make a tall card... I decided to make a long card :) 

I used my stamps from My Pink Stamper again tonight and I LOVE how this card came together.  I did cut it a little bit so I did have to chop off some of the top of my watermelon-- oh well nothing a little scissors couldn't handle. 

I must say I love the idea I had when it came to determining the background for my oval-- I was planning to use a scallop oval but it didn't look right so I was digging around and the piece left over from the red cut of the watermelon was perfect!!  So I trimmed it off of the full sheet and viola!

Recipe:
Cricut Cut: Simply Charmed
Paper: SU! and the red gingham is from Making Memories
Stamp: My Pink Stamper
Other stuff: Pearls
