Tutti Fruiti Challenge





Are you sick of fruit yet? I was checking out some blogs when I came across The Paper Variety and low and behold their challenge this week is to create something with fruit in it. This challenge was made for me. This card was a lot of different things before it became this, or should I say the medium used was different. I tried gluing itty, bitty, tiny, minuscule beads to the watermelon (yes, it is a watermelon) These said beads had a small accident and now live forever all over my craft room. I finally decided I would go with something safe like buttons. All was fine, I was digging the outcome until my beloved husband asked why I had a pink and green smiley face. REALLY? Be honest did you know it was a watermelon? Enjoy and thanks for stopping by.
