Curtain Call Inpsiration Challenge - Watermelon Wonder

Welcome back to another Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!   Our next challenge is titled "Watermelon Wonder", just perfect for this time of year indeed :)   Our sponsor for this challenge is Fresh Squeezed Stamps, and the winner of this challenge will receive a gift from them.

 
I just love the colours on this inspiration picture and immediately thought of MME's The Sweetest Thing paper pad as the papers and colours are so perfect for this challenge!  Using flowers, a butterfly, a heart, a scalloped circle and some crimping makes for a whole lot of happy in my world :)
