National Watermelon Day - DotMCC Challenge #18

Hello everyone!
Time for a new challenge at Day of the Month Card Club! This month we are celebrating: 

National Watermelon Day
celebrated on August 3

Did you know that watermelon is 92% water? No wonder it’s so refreshing! 
People have been digging into this tasty, juicy fruit for millennia and it all started in Ancient Egypt. 
It’s said that watermelon cultivation began in the Nile Valley as early as the second millennium B.C. 
Watermelon seeds were even found in Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb and in the Dead Sea region at the ancient settlements of Bab edh-Dhra and Tel Arad! (Source: Wikipedia)

Now to my card, which is very simple. 
I started by stamping melon slices around the card and colored some of them with crayons. Mounted this panel on a slightly larger card base and added the vellum with an already printed sentiment.
For more interest I put some enamel dots here and there! 

Happy Melon Day - all summer long!!!
