WaterMellon anyone?

Hi and welcome to
 Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #27
Picnic/Summer Fun Theme

Todays challenge : to create a project, card,etc on this theme.
My project started with this
gorgeous ribbon  Sheer Ombre Kiwi/Watermellon from RRR.
 Once I knew what ribbon I was gonna use I set about making a basket with a card to match.
I googled and found several tuts on
watermellon baskets.
I sorta took a bit from each site and did my own thing.
Here are the 2 sites:
Basket 1
Basket 2

For the basket I used some SU cardstock  and a piece of paper from MY Minds Eye "Bohemia" .
For the seeds I used a MS branch punch,
and cut them apart.
I also used a MS punch for the handle and treaded the watermellon ribbon thru.Added a bow to each side,filled the basket with some watermellon treats.
For my card I used the same papers,added the watermellon piece I cut off from  top of the basket .
I found the sentiment I used  online.
Added more of the Watermellon ribbon from RRR.

Now lets see some Picnic/Summer Fun creations.
The winner will receive  a $10. gift certificate to Really Reasonable Ribbon .
We will also be drawing a random winnner to win another $ certificate.
Be sure to use ribbon , lace or some sort of trim on your creations.
I look forward to seeing all your creations.
Be sure to check out the RRR team for their awesome creations.
Have a wonderful day.

Happy Canada Day  to all my fellow Canadians.
