Polka Doodles and Peachy Keen Challenges

The challenge at Polka Doodles this week is to create something using fruit and include a hidden element. I combined that challenge with this week's sketch at Peachy Keen. The papers are 'Plain Green' and 'Sugar Gingham' from my Sugar Birdies cd. The watermelon stamp is from Peachy Keen, colored with Copic markers and a little glitter pen. I attached the watermelons with brads so they can be moved to reveal the hidden sentiment, then I added a little ribbon, some rhinestones, and a touch of doodling. The sentiments are computer generated. This was a fun card to make ... be sure to visit Polka Doodles and Peachy Keen to play along!
