Watermelon Popsicle

Hi Friends!  I'm back with my second post for this busy Tuesday!  Today I'm sharing a Cool Card that's perfect for those Summer Occasions and it features the Watermelon Popsicle digital image from Not 2 Shabby.

I've colored the image using alcohol markers, fussy cut and set aside to work on the background.  I wanted a sweet and simple layout/design so I ink blended a very pale pink over the card and adhered the panel to a card base.

I received a frilly die cut in a card swap and thought it would look nice behind the image, so it's been adhered to the panel.  The sentiment and popsicle have been popped on craft foam for dimension.  Lastly, bright pink enamel dots were added for that extra bit of interest.

I love watermelon but it's still too early in the year to find a good one, I love the melons I buy at roadside stands in July.  They are the reddest and sweetest ever.  I can't wait to get a melon, chill it and eat those sweet, juicy chunks!

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
