Strawberry jam

Continuing my "edible" theme....this card uses the new digi image "Strawberry Jam" from A Passion for Stamps.
Again I got carried away with the glitter and Glossy accents but I love the effect of these on top of Promarkers.
I'm trying to loose a few pounds at the moment and every time I try all I can think about is food so maybe that's why my latest images are on this theme..?
I had all the elements ready to put together but waited to see what the new week end challenges were so that it would suit a few and this is the result..

Sketch Saturday.... the sketch
Basic Grey...paper piecing. They are also having a DT call so I think I'll have a go at that too.
Oh, Alice.... sparkle
A Pocket full of Posies...winged things
Alphabet Challenge...S is for scallops
DareU2Digistamp....shaped card
Moving along with the Times...in stitches
One Stop Craft...photo inspiration(butterflies)
Paperplay...in stitches
I am a member of the "Anything but Cute " group on Papercraft Planet and this card is also for their LACE challenge!

and last, but definitely not least..... Merry's Letraset Aquamarkers and sticker store giveaway. Check this great giveaway out!! Your entry must contain a coloured image and sticker. Mine has two little butterfly stickers which I've stuck onto gingham paper to suit the card.

Don't forget I'll have a Promarker giveaway soon for followers of my blog!! More later..

  27. WAHOO! What an amazing creation. I'm late commenting but am SO happy I hopped over. My mom would have been thrilled so see such a lovely creation inspired by her precious monarchs. It's even more fitting as one of her favorite treats were strawberries! THANK you for sharing at the OSC.
