Strawberries V Chocolate

And in my opinion, chocolate wins every time!! This card is for the Tiddly Inks challenge which is:

Sugar and Spice with a Twist (sarcastic or humorous card)

I've coloured the Tiddly Inks image with Promarkers and she's got glossy accent glasses! All the papers are from Funky Hand - Craft The Year Away cd and I've just rounded the edges and inked them.

The image has been dotted around the edge with a fine black pen as it looked a little lost. The sentiment is computer generated and was thought up by my brain.

I've followed the wonderful Sweet Sketch Wednesday sketch (always great for inspiration and making a card come alive!)

Don't forget! Fetch A Sketch launches at 9am tomorrow with two fabulous sponsors - so you won't want to miss it!

I'd also like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Guylou's Inimitability Challenge: Sweet Summer (word sweet on front of card and summer theme)
Wags n Whiskers: Summertime
Aud Sentiments: Food or Drink Theme

  • Image: Tiddly Inks, coloured with Promarkers
  • Papers: Funky Hand - Craft The Year Away cd
  • Sentiment: Computer generated
  • Everything else: My stash
