Strawberries anyone?

Hello everyone and a very happy Monday to you all!

I made this card for two challenges: -
Challenge #67 at My Time to Craft - "No Patterened Papers!", and
Challenge # 58 at A Spoonful of Sugar - "Summer"
(Sorry about the wonky photo - it's a long story but I was having to hold the camera with one hand!)

Here' s what I used to make this card:-
Stamp: from Magnolia Club Summer kit
Colouring Medium: Prismacolor Premier pencils and Sansador
Tools: Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder; Nestabilities "Large Scallop Rectangles", "Classic Scallop Circles", "Circles"

I hope the week is a good one for you.

Thank you for stopping by my blog - your visit and any comments are very much appreciated.

Hi Clare

Tough call - no patterned paper - but you have mastered it perfectly.

Love your card and that beautifully coloured image is gorgeous.

Love Jules xx
