Tilda & Strawberries

I finally found time to make a card this afternoon after making sure my DT work is up to date for July, as I go away on Sunday for 4 weeks. Lets hope that the electricity & Telecoms in Cyprus dont go on strike as they are planning to do, because no fridge, air con etc in 100oC heat is no joke & no internet either. Oh deep joy! Keeping my fingers crossed that they sort it out before I get there.
Anyway back to this card. I chose Strawberry Yummy from Sweet Rainbow collection & coloured her with Promarkers. Mounted her onto Nestie Labels 11 & edged it with TH DI Peeled Paint. The papers are Bo Bunny & Black Market Paper Society. You can just see the Catalina Memory Box die in the middle of the card.
This die is a Sissix, Flowers, branches & leaves. I have had it ages & never used it before. (neglected stash ) Added mini jewels to the middle of the flowers. The lace I coloured with TH DI Dusty Concord. All edges were distressed too.
Added a cute little strawberry charm & a few dew drops, as well as loads of flowers & there you are.
Apart from my DT cards which I hope will work as they are all scheduled, this is the last card you will see for a while as I will be busy by the pool etc etc.......

Hi Dawn, as always I'm running around blogland apologising for being behind with commenting - so here I am apologising!

Beautiful cards since I visited last - your cards are always so beautifully put together, such attention to detail and lovely embellies.

Hope you have a fab holiday - and they don't cut the air-con!!
