Happy Fourth of July!!

Hello friends!! I wish all Americans a Happy fourth of July!! This is such a great country and I am grateful everyday for it!  I also hope for relief from heat and other problems to those suffering in our country.  A stampin' friend asked me about a watermelon card and showed me a picture of one she had found.  I'm sorry, I don't know who to give credit for this design, but I used her card to make a couple for my friend, Cindy!
 I used my Grand Circle nestabilities for the large card base in white.  Then I cut the same size circle from a digital paper from a NitWit collection.  The red and pink dots are from my 'stash'. I used the large scallop circle in the biggest size for the white edging.  I hand cut some 'seeds' from black cardstock. 
 This card is embellsihed with a bow and a button
And this one with a bow, button and tag (SU sentiment).

Wishing you fun and watermelon today!!

That's really cool! I am not a fan of watermelon, but I am a fan of your card. It's perfect for picnics.

These are toooo cute! I love the way you did them - so cheerful and fun. I ate a bit too much watermellon today - I love it. These would make fabulous place cards at a table.
