365 Cards Day 89 & Use It! Challenge 12

For 365 Cards Day 89 - Imagine This: Watermelon -- The Challenge: Watermelon is the inspiration - use the colors or an actual image of a watermelon on your card. I used the colors and "layout" of a slice of watermelon to make this card:

I combined this challenge with Use It! Challenge 12:

1) Use some old chipboard-Go ahead and feel free to mix & match manufacturers. (Chipboard is one supply I don't really use and don't have any in my stash. I substituted a black cardstock tag with a "happy birthday" rub on.)
2) Use buttons- one of my very favorite embellishments. (I only managed to use one button which is so unlike me!)
3) Tear some paper. Patterned paper or cardstock. (I tore a strip of white cardstock and accented it with some pink chalk.)
4) Optional: Stitch. Machine or hand stitch, it's up to you. (I machine zig zag stitched around my card.)
5) Have fun!! This is essential. (Always!!!)
