Strawberry time

This beautiful weather continues so this image seems appropriate. Its another of the new ones from LOTV, and a very different image for them. Much as I adore cute images it is nice to try something different and when you are selling cards you need to make cards for all tastes. My least favourite colour is lime green and the Promarkers and Flexmarker I used on the colander have been used very little but I actually like them with the red and they match the Raspberry Road Summer Goodness papers perfectly. These were free in this month's Quick Cads mag and as soon as I saw the strawberry paper knew they would be perfect with this image. I've added some vintage seam binding, a couple of Sizzx die cut corners and a few of the Memory die cute butterflies to match the ones in the image which have been coloured with Sakura clearstar and rosestar pens.
