Happy Hopper Watermelon

Please bear with me and come back tomorrow night when I'll have the FULL details for this card. I'm down to the wire and trying to get my cards posted for the 365 Cards challenge. My goal was to meet each challenge for the month of May. After a flurry of glue and paper, I did it. Now to get them posted. I had to cop out a little bit and combine 2 of their challenges for this card. This is my entry for Day 89 - Watermelon and the sketch from Day 92. EDITED TO ADD: Everything is so much calmer in the morning. Much better to type out supply lists and the such. This card was only made for the 365 Card Challenges. Amazing, I know. I tend to try and merge as many challenges as I can into one card. It’s become my own personal challenge! (Please see the Ins and Outs for links to the challenge websites and feel free to join in the fun).

Image Detail
I had a bit of fun by adding a ‘gem’ seed that flew out of the actual image. I also added Diamond Glaze to the watermelon (it’s super juicy) after I’d Spica-ed things up a bit.
