Strawberries



Our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge is Summer colours. I have used the super cute pre coloured Strawberry Mice. I decided to use the precoloured digi as I made this card earlier this week when it was almost too hot to do anything. I am so glad it didn't last too long here. Not colouring the image gave me more time to concentrate on the layout. You may recognise the sketch as I have used two slightly different versions of it already this month for a Facebook challenge. It is certainly one I shall use again in the future as I do love banners.

The image gave me just the excuse I needed to use the strawberry paper which I have been longing to use. The papers are lilybee Sweet Shoppe, one of my fave pads at the moment as the colours are so Summery. I used MFT basic border, fishtail stax and basic stitch line dies. The sentiment I found in my stash.

This is gorgeous Marianne! I can't wrap my head around how you've created the texture on the strawberries! Or is the topper just coloured that way. It's fab! The lil' boy mouse looks decoupaged, or is that also the topper. It's fabulous either way. LOVE those gorgeous strawberry papers. A really sweet creation hun. Hugs, Wends xoxo
