Summery Strawberry Willow


Hi all just a quick post as its 1.35am and I am thinking about closing my eyes and having nices dreams very soon lol.
My card this morning is much busier than you are used to seeing from me and I am still unsure of it but we can't love every card we make we are always going to have ones that we think are just ok.
I have used a WOJ image called Shy Willow and I think she is so beautiful,the paper is from Crafters Companion's Cute Companions Summer Stories I just thought it would go well with the strawberries on her dress,D'vine Swirls embossing folder,flowers and ribbon from my stash and labels 4 nesties.
I am entering this one into the following Challenges:

Allsorts Challenge-Summer days
Bunny Zoes-Summer Days
Simon Says-Lets get fruity
Sir Stampolot-Lazt,Hazy days of summer
Tamiko's-Flowers
Totally Gorgeous-Thinking of you
Thanks for popping over
hugs
Lorraine xx

You're right about the paper & the strawberries & I love how you've coloured her & then used the white as a highlight both in her apron & accented with the flowers. It's good to do something different & as you say we can't like every card we make, but we learn in the process. Hope you've had some sleep by the time you read this (don't ask what time it is now!)
