Summer treat & Freebie Digipaper

Hi, everyone!
I'm back with another of my Mo Manning fruity girly images! lol! I am taking my sweet time finishing cards, lately, and procrastinating like mad! This one took me three days to complete! Yikes! I'm thinking I better step it up, though......I have two birthday cards to make, and mail by mid-week next week!
In the meantime, though, here is my Mo card for today....
I am loving coloring in PSE. It still takes me a long time to make it look like I colored it by hand, but I'm going to keep practicing! Oh! I can't believe I forgot to tell you......I FINALLY bought some Copics! Yay, me! lol! I purchased 18 of them, all skin colors. I am going to give those a whirl once they arrive, and if I like using them, you know I'll just have to buy more! lol! Oh no......this could be a bad thing for the old pocket book! lol!
Anyhow, back to the card..........I made the watermelon paper (the freebie today), and used an EK Success punch for the edge. The image and the scalloped layer are nestie cuts. The sentiment is printed from PSE and I used some SU punches for that and the scalloped layer of that one. The leaves are all from my Nesties set called "Foliage" and the pink scalloped edge is an EK Success punch. A little bit of inking was done on the leaves to make them more detailed.
It has been a while since I gave away any of my digipapers, so today 's freebie is the Watermelon Digipaper that I used a piece of on my card. It is a 5"x5" 300dpi file, perfect for printing on a 5x7 piece of cardstock to use on a card! You can always size it up or down in your editing software, as well, but I figure this is a good size for hybrid card making - please let me know what you think, and if you'd prefer it to be a different size! I love to hear your opinions, and comments are always appreciated!

Please leave some love if you enjoy my freebies! I love to hear from you! :) This is how I know you were here, like what you see, and would like to see more!
