As sweet as Strawberries!

I have another card for you today, a card made from the beautiful sketch super talented Jacque gave us for Friday Sketchers Challenge this week. I've been wanting to make something with it since last Friday! Thank you sweetie, it was lovely to create with it, I'll be definately using it again! ;)If you haven't visited Jacque yet.. I tell you.. you MUST go and pay her a visit! She always includes something extraordinary in her creations!

Detail of the embellishments and pearls.

I will also enter this card for Charizma Cards, which theme this week is "Yummy".. Strawberries are yummy to me more than cakes, so I hope it counts! :) Also ABC Challenge this week gave us R is for Roses.. I have some roses there, don't you think?! :)

I used this cute HAnglar image that I've been given, I coloured with my usual Distress ink; and yes I used again Blues and Reds together!!! I told you last week that I must be sick!! lol

Sorry i'll try to change my colour next time! lol I used Crystal Lacquer on both outside and inside strawberries, to give them some shine and dimension. I added pearls, Spellbinders swirl dies, and some gold brads for the ribbon. Sorry I changed a bit the ribbon design Jacque, I liked it this way :) The computer generated sentiment is popped up on foam pads.

Inside View

I hope you feel inspired now more to join in these challenges as well :) As for our challenge on ROP, you have still 3 more days to enter. I'll be visiting the entries soon :) Big hugs to you, and I hope that this card will bring a smile on your face today.

If it does, please let me know by leaving me acomment here, I'd be delighted to hear from you. I dedicate the inside sentiment to you! Love ya!!

Face and body parts: Tea Dye and Fired Brick
Dress and shoes: Broken China
Strawberries and leggings : Red Mahogany, and some Fired Brick as well
Hair and the thing she is sitting on (sorry don't know what to call it!): Vintage Photo, Scaterred Straw and Walnut Stain
