Summer is definitely here!

It's really quite warm here today, the big thermometre out the front says the temperature is 39.5 C (about 103 F), so its been a day indoors for me. I made this little card before heading into work.
 
The idea has been in my head since getting the Circle Scissors from Stampin' Up! I just wasn't sure if it was going to work. I actually tried it on a much smaller scale first, with my 1 3/8" circle punch. When I was sure it was going to work, I made this one. 
I made this card for 2 different challenges, the first being Just Add Ink, Just add summer challenge, and the Stamping 411 Colour challenge. I always relate watermelon to the start of summer, so that is my reasoning behind this cute card.
