Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge - #46 Sketch

Hi everyone!  Today I'm playing along with this GREAT sketch challenge over at Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws challenge!  We're into strawberry season down here in South Carolina, but it won't be long until the melons are ripened and ready for eating!  I seriously love a good sweet watermelon and this set, Sweet Summer has so many juicy images, it's a must have for summer papercrafting!

This cute background paper is by Photoplay, "Summer Daydreams" 6x6 pad. All the stitched dies are MFT.  I added some b/w twine and I used Glossy Accents on the seeds to make them look real!

Thanks for stopping, I hope you'll leave me a comment AND join in on our challenge over at NND Inky Paws!!

I've joined these additional challenges with this project:
