Watermelon and Summer Birthdays

The Outlawz girls have a new Clean and Simple challenge for us this week - Orange and Yellow.  I don't do CAS very well.  Since I started working with Magnolia images I have tended to look for more layers and flowers to add before my creative sense thinks the card is complete.

I purchase some new papers over the weekend and one of them suits this challenge very well.  It is from The C-Thru Ruler Company - Sweet Summer Time Watermelon Hopscotch.  The lower half of the paper is loaded with what looks like watermelon slices and flowers, perfectly painted with orange, yellow, green and red.  I thought this section of the paper would make a nice backdrop for my CAS card.

Two members of my family have birthdays in August and I think this will do well for one of them.
