Sunday & No Work Tomorrow!

Good afternoon all you lovely people of Blog!
I hope you are all well!
I'm officially on my holidays although we're staying at home,
so we can spend some time at 
I'll post more about that later!

Sunday as ever sees a new challenge over at
The Crafty Pad!

 The theme  is "Gone FrUiTy" (lets see some fruit on your cards)
Here's my card

I made an easel card!
The Image I have used is 
& the sentiment that I've used for the stop comes as part of it!

Nice & simple but I really love those strawberries, they just cry out summer to me! 
Here's how I made it!

I used an A4 sheet of card for the base card,
scored & folded it at a quarter then a half to give me easel base.
I then cut sections of my design paper to decorate.
The paper I've used is from the
I coloured up the image with Promarkers, using umber, gold & green on the seeds! 
(Did you know Strawberries are the only fruit that has it's seeds on the outside???)
I then added Diamond Sparkles to the seeds
I cut round the image & mounted it onto a piece of card which I had run through my big shot in a 
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Swiss Dots!

I also added some red organza ribbon from my stash & some little red flower buttons.

I ran some lace from Dainty Paperie  along the top & bottom sections just to add the finishing touch.
I hope you like it & that you have time to join in our Gone FrUiTy challenge at The Crafty Pad this week!
