My take on Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch Challenge #34

Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch Challenge #34 uses the sketch below.  This is my take on that sketch. This card is going to my sweet hubby who does indeed make my life a picnic!

Sketch:

My Card:

I used Doodlecharms cart to cut the watermelon, paper from Bazzill, Papertrey Ink and a DCWV stack, green ric-rac from Oriental Trading, Memento & Brilliance ink for stamping, Nesties labels #4, and the faces are from PK Simple Simon face assortment stamps. The ants... I could not find an ant border on my carts, I didn't have an ant stamp, I could not find an ant digi stamp I liked, but I did find a stamp carving kit I had purchased some time ago. So..... can you believe it, I carved an ant stamp! :)
