Sweet Strawberries

Hi peeps! Just a quick post today... I just thought I'd show off some of my new goodies! I ordered a few things from Joanna Sheen recently, and my little parcel arrived with this gorgeous gingham ribbon! I'm thrilled with it... the colour is so lovely! I think I shall have to order more, in other colours! 

I've gone for a red theme to my card today (it's Remembrance Sunday in the UK) using this gorgeous strawberry image from Crafty Secrets. I got out the old heat gun and put a coat of clear embossing all over the image, I think it helps make it stand out. The lovely green background paper is from A Scrap Affair. Don't forget we have a super challenge on over at A Scrap Affair blog, where we'd like to see your 'recipe' cards... there's some Ranger Perfect Pearls mists up for grabs!

I'm entering my card into the challenge at:
Cute Card Thursday - Reds For Remembrance
Simon Says Stamp - Photo Inspiration (Poppy Field)
Totally Papercrafts - Victorian

Special thoughts for Remembrance Sunday...

J'adore ta carte ! Le ruban est très beau et la touche d'embossage est une très bonne idée, bravo !

Shelly, honey, I am sorry-my life is a bit crazy at the moment, and don't have much time... Anyways, what I am trying to say is-you can post it yourself, I think you know where and how. It's ADORABLE and sweet! And I love it!

This is just stunning! I love the torn paper and the gingham ribbon. Fab embossing too! I never thought of embossing a whole image before, so thanks for the inspiration.
