Evening all!
I have a card to share with you!
On a Monday too!!!
I was doing a bit of crafting yesterday & I remembered that the challenge at For Fun Challenges was Watermelon! You can also pick up a FREEBIE from their sponsor  Meljen's Designs  if you need it!
Of course I popped on over to refresh my memory & pick up the FREEBIE
It's such a cute little image !
Here's my card

I used a pale green 7"x4" card blank for the base of my card.
I added two triangles of DP in watermelon type colours.
The pink spotted paper is from Southfield Staioners & the green paper was actually the result of my old printer giving up the ghost! I decided to keep the mishap & I'm soo glad I did!
I then added a strip of mini Ric Rac across the join  & added a couple of little triangles at the corners.

I used my graphics programme to add some text around the image.
Then I cut it out with a Nellie Snellen Die.
 I'd like to say I managed to judge the size perfectly but it was actually 
a happy coincidence!
I then coloured up the image with Promarkers & added a couple of little 
highlights with a white gel pen.

My final addition was a few little pieces of Card Candy!
Thanks for looking & I hope you like it!
I'm off to enter it into a challenge or two!
