Sweet Summer Watermelon!

As I said in a earlier post I have been doing really good for a few days. I can't count on my  back and legs to cooperate with me living my life so I have to do as I can do it. If that makes sense?  So here is another card I was able to do yesterday.  I kinda like it, it's very summer to me, and bright, so it makes me happy!

The base is an  A2 out of really bright lime green. The papers are all  Bazzill. The ribbon is green gingham, I wish the picture was better. On the tan piece I used the mesh folder with the Cuttlebug. The watermelon and brown scallop on the side of the card base is from the Just Because Cards Challenge.  The banner is from the Just a Note that is preloaded on the E2 machine.  The lime green buttons are from JoAnn's. The little white dots I used my Inkssentials white pen.

I will enter this card in the following challenges:
