It's time for the month end challenge over at BBTB2 and Heather our fabulous leader chose the Melon cut from an old favourite cart Stretch Your Imagination
I decided to use the melon cut in a different way and made a banner!
All my American cyber friends will be celebrating the 5th of July very soon so I made this  card to celebrate their special day!
My card is 6x6" and I cut three melons on blackout and layer @2". The papers are (stripey) printed from a Pink Petticoat download and the stars are from a free download from Gina K.  The little boy cut is from A Childs Year (one of my faves to use at the moment :) ) and I flipped the cut and cut the shadow in red card and base in white card @ 3"and cuttled the base cut with CB folder Swiss dots. This has been pop dotted on to the card just for a little dimension. The word happy is also cut from A Childs Year in gold mirricard @ 1 1/4" and 4th is from Joys of the Season also in gold mirricard @ 2 1/4".  To finish off  I added some gorgeous adhesive little gold balls which my wonderful friend Lillie sent me, thanks Lillie!
As it's month end some of my DT sisters are hopping and offering a little candy along the way so pop over to BBTB2 now and follow the hop from there and see all their mouthwatering melon creations too! We would love you to join in our challenge too and you can use a melon cut from any cart to enter!
Have a great week everyone and thanks for popping in!
