Strawberry Ted...

Hi there, Susan here with another card to show you.

I have made this card using a great sketch from Sketchy Colours, and because my digi image is holding a rather large juicy strawberry I did my colours and backing papers to match.

The backing papers are from Crafters Companion, cute companion - summer stories, this is a rather cute CD with fabulous backing papers. All the edges of the papers were distressed.

The ribbon is from my local market, as you all know we get all our ribbons and lace from here. The little butterflies I made using a punch and inks to colour. I glittered them to bring them to life!!!



The image is a digi from Pollycraft.... I used Pro-Markers to colour the image and inked the background before distressing the edges.


My flowers were a mixture as usual, the smaller ones from Wild Orchid Crafts and the larger pink and cream one I made myself using a five petal flower punch.

The sentiment I made myself on the computer, I inked the background and edges before distressing to match the backing papers.

The cute little silver strawberry just finished it off, this was from Bunny Zoes Crafts.

I am entering this card into the following challenges....

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card, I hope you liked it.

Love Susan

  21. Wow. I love this card. So summery and sweet and Strawberry Ted is beyond cute!! The papers are absolutely beautiful and how you've put them together is inspired. I love the charms you use, always so well placed. Your flowers (as usual!) are amazing and go together so well in the arrangement you create.
