Sketches! by Tamara 97 & 365 Cards 89

Day 89's challenge over at 365 Cards was to be inspired by a watermelon, either the colours or to use an image of the fruit.

I was having a mooch through the DCWV Summer drawers set I had from QVC last year and there is so much yummy watermelon stuff !

I used sketch # 97 from Sketches! By Tamara for the layout and turned the card around to fit the glittered cardstock image in the centre of the card. The hexagon backing paper and the stripe are all part of a collection of co-ordinating papers and embellishments. The colours are mouthwatering.

I used a bit of inking and matting and layering to give definition to the various elements. The gold string and sentiment are both from Let's Make Cards packs.

That's another older 365 challenge off my list, only another 27 to go plus today's challenge!
