A Card and a Sad Farewell

Hi there dear friends, before i share my card i have some sad news. As most of you will know i recently became a DT on the Do It With Digis challenge blog but due to health reasons our lovely owner Lynne is closing down the blog. I have really enjoyed my short time as a Diva and i hope you will all join me in wishing Lynne a speedy recovery. Why not pop over to the Do It With Digis and leave Lynne a fond farewell, i'm sure she will appreciate it!! Get well soon Lynne xx

My card i am sharing with you today has been created using a digital image from Create with TLC
it's not my usual style as i normally make quite girly cards with pinks, purples and aquas. I couldn't resist trying this image out on a card, i have coloured the strawberries with Promarkers and then added some glossy accents to create a juicy effect.
