Time for WATERMELON at For Fun Challenges

Happy hump-day folks! Time for the latest challenge over at FOR FUN and this week we want to see....

WATERMELON

That's the FRUIT, and NOT the colours, just so you know.

We are delighted to welcome back the super sponsor MELJENS again this week, with a prize of 4 digis of the winner's choice!
The DT were lucky enough to get the chance to use some of their wonderful images....here's what I made:

It's a shaker card! Don't you just LOVE that cheeky lil' ant sneaking off with a huge slice of watermelon!! And the BEST news is, he's a FREEBIE from MelJen's blog, so even if you don't have something suitable to use, you can grab this fab image for free and join us!

He is of course coloured with Promarkers and one of MelJen's wonderful images. I found my BPs from various sources, Pink Petticoat included, which is where the sentiment is from too.

Here's a close-up of the shaker...I used the punched out bits from one of my border-punches to make the seeds!!!

I'm loving my black gingham ribbon atm, so watch for it popping up on several of my cards in the coming weeks! I also decorated inside my card...


Ok, so if you want to join us for the Watermelon challenge, we'd LOVE to come visit your blog to see what you create :D

I'm going to enter a few challenges with my watermelon shaker card:
Thanks for popping by!
