Mmm, watermelon time

This is "Watermelon Avery" from The Paper Nest Dolls -- it just wouldn't be summertime, if you haven't enjoyed cool, refreshing, ripe watermelon.  I always try to pick the largest one, and then cut it up into bowls to chill in the frig.   I've colored Avery with prismas and then framed her in oval die cuts.  The foliage is also a die cut, which I've added flowers to.  A couple pearls at the upper corner, a couple butterflies, and a length of watermelon ribbon that coordinated beautifully with my theme - don't you just love when you can locate matching stash on hand !!
I have entered these challenges:

Come and Get It - die cuts
Crafty Sentiments Designs - pearls/strass
Creative Craft Cottage - add butterflies
Send a Smile 4 Kids - AG 4 kids
The Paper Nest Dolls - AG
