JBelle Tuesday! ~ You're as Sweet, as a Summer Treat!


Today's Jacksonbelle Embellishments challenge is to make a card inspired by a cookout! Can you believe Memorial Day is in 6 days?? Yay, for Summer! I decided to make a simple watermelon card! My son's favorite summer fruit! I hand-drew the watermelon(yeah, big deal! just a half a circle! I can handle that one!! hehe) I then colored it in with some pastel, shimmery chalks and then added some Celery and Coal Shimmerz paints and just a touch of white glitter to the white part of the fruit. I wanted to make a checkered tablecloth out of the ribbon but that didn't turn out so hot, so I just added a little ribbon underneath the watermelon. The DP is Bo Bunny, the saying I printed out of MS Word and the pearls are by Kaiser Craft.

We would love to see your Cookout inspired cards too! When uploading to SCS, please use keyword JBE054 or send a link to your card to the JBelle Blog!

Now let's go see what the fabulously talented other Jbelle Rockstars created!!

Love it! The first card I did for this challenge was a slice of watermelon similar to this but then I got the idea for my hamburger card so I had to post that one instead. Anyway, you did a great job on this. Very cute!
