Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday # 70 - Melon Time

Hello everyone. Hope you are all enjoying the wonderful summer weekends.
I can't believe it is almost August.

I do love this time of summer because the produce and fruits are really good this time of year. On hot summer days, I especially love watermelon.

So when this weeks Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday challenge was Melon time, it had to be a watermelon cut in some way on the project.
please stop by to see what the Design team has done with this theme . I hope you are inspired to link up a "melon" of a project yourself.


Here's How I did it...
Card is basic A2 size
Paper from my stash
Melon/layers cut at 1.88" from Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons; p.45
EK border punch
Seeing spots cuttlebug folder for background embossing folder
Sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Stamps Charmed Life stamp set

Clicked on the Fantabulous Cricut link and the challenge posted is still ice cream as far as I can see. I also clicked on past challenges on the site and did nit see the mention of the new watermelon challenge. What am I doing incorrectly?
