Fruity - Watermelon Girl

Hiya Crafty Friends and Bloggers...hope you are all well!! Had a little play today, so I'm sharing this ''sweet'' card I created.  I had bought a fab Trimcraft goody bag the other week, it contained lots of lovely ''Sweet Paris'' goodies, which I put to good use along with other craft goodies from my stash!! The image I have used is part of the ''Fruity Girls'' collection called Watermelon Girl by the fabulous Julia Spiri!! Without further ado, here is my creation, hope you like it!!
My Project
Products Used

Bazzil Bling - Green card
Crafter's Companion - Watercolour card

Watermelon effect paper I found on the internet

Layered together the Bazzil Bling card and ''Sweet Paris'' paper onto a 6x6 white scalloped blank card. To create the 'watermelon', I layered together greenglitter card, white pearlised card and the watermelon effect paper that I found on the internet and die cut using Spellbinders grand scalloped circle and circle dies. Using the smallest scalloped circle die I cut out the 'bite mark' and edged with ''Fruit Punch'' stickles, adding seeds I made by cutting out black card!! To finish off I added doily, flowers, brads, ladybug button, die cut rose leaves and pearls!!
