Strawberry Teddy

Another day of sunshine and pouring rain today. I've had the light on this afternoon as it was so dark when it rained I couldn't see to make a card. Now the sun is shining. Teddy Bea looks like she is having a lovely time with her basket of strawberries. She is coloured with Promarkers of course with a few Sakura rosestar highlights for sparkle. I made another 8" square card with papers from Henbury Lane, an MS border punch and an embossing folder on some pearlised card. I made the flowers using a Blossom Nestie and various punches and then sprayed them all with Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine. I used a leaf punch and an embossing ivy leaf punch.

Here's the detail of the large flower.
