a melon thanks card

I needed another thank you card and wanted something with a summer feel!  At a sunny beautiful 87 degrees here today, it feels like summer!   I was browsing through some paper and came upon this fruit paper in the DCVW Sweet Stack (it's as yummy looking as it sounds), which along with the SOUS challenge to use a fruit die cut inspired my card.    The watermelon slices are from the CM Cheerful Seasons cart.  I spent awhile waffling between it and the watermelon from my beloved Doodlecharms, but decided to go with the Cheerful Seasons melons since it cut two slices of watermelon.  We all know that with watermelon one slice is NEVER enough!

CM Cheerful Seasons-watermelon slices cut at 2 in.
Paper-DCWV Sweet Stack for the fruit and pink paper, CM for the orange dot and green paper
ribbon-from the stash
