Chocolate, Strawberries and Cream - only at Colour Create -yum!

 I'm back with a card for our new challenge at Colour Create which has been chosen by the super talented, Mina - the 'colours' are Chocolate, Strawberries and Cream ( oh I feel hungry now!) with the optional extra of ribbon.

Doesn't that look delicious!! Our regular sponsor, Michele's Scrapbooking is back with us this for this challenge, and you could win this gorgeous stamp - 'At the Corner of'.

I  decided to get  my distress inks out for a change -  I think Tilda looks like she's eaten too many strawberries!!

 She doesn't look like she's sharing any choccie with her friends either the way she's guarding that chocolate tin!!  I do love the sentiment though - had these ages ( from Inkadinkadoo) , children's funny sayings.  They're not that easy to incorporate into cards  but at last I've sort of managed it!  My papers are a mixture of K&Co and My Mind's Eye and a little bit of Basic Grey ( either Origins or Capella!)  I glossy accented the jar to give it some shine and a glass effect.

Here's a link to the Colour Create Challenge, if you'd like to join in with us ( please do!) You can also pop over there to ooh and aahh at the rest of the DT's wonderful cards and to check out the winner of our Yellow and Green challenge.
