One card, two challenges



I've just got this Strawberry stamp from Flourishes..AT LAST!!!
I've been craving this stamps for ages, but kept putting it off due to the cost to the UK.
Bit the bullet and ordered it and it's worth every single penny!
I've ripped it open and got stuck in straight away with two challenges.

The first one is for Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. Another gorgeous sketch Mercy!

The second one is for the Papertake Weekly Challenge. Represent a season. Well, strawberries come with cream, which equals Wimbledon, which takes place in the SUMMER!
Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it. LOL

We have sun in today, here in Macclesfield!!! Makes SUCH a change from cloud and rain!

Have a wonderful Tuesday, wherever you are. Viv xxx

Wow, Viv. I can see why you wanted this image, it is beautiful and perfectly colored. I love the gray shading, makes the image leap off the paper. Wonderful card.

Ooooh, such a pretty card, Viv. I love the pretty strawberry image. . .it's very pretty and you did such a wonderful job coloring it! It feels like summer looking at your card because when summer rolls around theres a lot people who sell strawberries at the side of the road where I live. Beautiful job on your card!
