Last GDT card for the craftypad

Hiya everyone,

This is my last card for my guest DT position over at the crafty pad. I was given some really fab images to work with so making the cards was good fun. This strawberries image can be purchased at the crafty pad designs.

I have coloured the image with my promarkers and it turned out better than expected - my shading and highlighting sometimes leave little to be desired Lol. The gingham papers are from funky fairy gorjuss ginghams which you sadly can no longer get. The lace and flowers are from wild orchid crafts. Sentiment done on the computer - font is "a little pot". Everything else from my stash. I based the layout on this weeks papertake weekly sketch except my image is oval rather than square - I hope that's ok!

I will enter it into the following challenges:-

Marks finest papers - Food
Secret crafter - Sweet treats
Guylou's inimitability - Anything goes
Simply create - The power of flowers
Do you stack up? - Anything goes
Paper romance - Anything goes

Southern girls - Brads, gems or dewdrops
Stampin B's - Use a flower

Tip top tuesdays - Bling it on
