Paper Pretties Monday

Hello everyone!  This is my 2nd post today for Paper Pretties.   Please scroll down to visit the Happy Birthday blog hop for Jackie.

This post, however, is all about the new release and the challenge.  The challenge this week is Picnic or BBQ.  Since I'm not very good at either one, here's my loose interpretation...

What a fun card this was to make - it actually went together relatively quickly.  The ant is so cute and looks so happy to be sitting on the watermelon enjoying the sweet summer fruits.  I did use a great sketch from The Sweet Stop.

My card features Tutti-Fruitti.

Image: Tutti-Fruitti
Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Kraft, Black
Paper: Springtime (Echo Park)
Copics:  C10, E37, RV000, R27, R29, RV02, RV10, RV27, YG00, YG03, YG17, YG67
Tools: Scallop border punch (Fiskars)
Embellishments: black gingham ribbon (Offray)

And here's the other new release - Chop Chop.

So head on over to the Paper Pretties Blog to see these new digi releases and the new stamp releases and to join this week's challenge!  Have a super Monday.
