Flight of Challenge (365 Cards Day 89)

The 365 Cards challenge today is "Imagine This: Watermelon". You must use the colors of or an actual watermelon image in your card. I built a slice of watermelon out of paper...no stamps!
Credits:
White Cardstock (base of card) - Wausau
Green Paper - Sizzix
Red paper - DCWV
Drawn watermelon seeds and handwritten word SWEET ! - Sakura Micron Pigma pen
Slight pinkness in the layer next to the rind was added with a pink Prismacolor pencil.

I left the insides blank for now but I think it would be appropriate for a thank you card. I'm already on my second watermelon this season...but it is the end of the summer when the watermelons in NE Oregon from Hermiston ripen that the really GREAT ones hit the market. I think the ones we are getting now are from Mexico. I have taken to calling watermelon Chinese food as every lunch and dinner we had on our trip to China last fall ended with watermelon for dessert!
