feeling fruity????

hello everyone well this is my last day off and ive been busy making this fantastic fruity card for the challenge over at crafty ribbons who are having a DT for (well for the next 19hours) anyway lol so like me ive managed to get round to doing my fruity card to enter the challenge and the DT call so wish me luck.

here is what i made

to make this i used red card (from stash)
strawberry backing paper (from google)
strawberry shortcake digi
strawberry ribbon (from stash)
silver heart die cut (kanban)
glittery ladybirds (from stash)

i stuck the red card to my card blank then cut the backing paper in to a dimond shape with the top and bottom cut off.
i then cut the image out which i coloured using promarkers placing it on to a silver heat die cut then on to the paper at an angle.
i then placed some blue strawberry ribbon down the left hand side with some white strawberry ribbon over the top.
i then made a bow out of the strawberry ribbon and placed in the centre of the ribbon.
i then added the two little ladybirds in the bottom right hand corner and the 'your berry sweet' sentiment in the top right hand corner.

here is a close up of the image and the die cut.

and a close up of the cute little glittery ladybirds

close up of the sentiment which i printed off using word
