Sweet Things for Summer

One of the fun things to do on a very hot summer day is to enjoy a slice of cold watermelon. I recently was lucky to win a prize of a Repeat Impressions stamp sheet from The House That Stamps Built and this great stamp was included.  I used  it in this card for their sketch challenge shown below.  Simply stamped the watermelon with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with pencils and highlighted the seeds with Black Glaze Marker. I cut with a circle die and matted on black circle mat. Used a check mat summery looking..outlined in black. Finished with sentiment from same stamp sheet and some Annabelle green sprinkles using white CS mat on Black CS card base.  Could have added more but liked the clean look of this simple layout.
Now I need to make a card for their other challenge using scoring.
