Less is More ~week 6

Strawberries off the edge.
Well I don't know about 'off the edge' this one nearly sent me over the edge!
After about 5 or 6 attempts this afternoon I finally managed to complete a card that wasn't splodgy.

Not a brilliant photo but the light isn't good today

This one is a digi image I found stored away on my computer (goodness knows where it came from I've had it for so long). I printed it out on a cream linen card with an added sentiment done in Publisher and then set about colouring it in with Promarkers.It's a 5inch square card ~ my favourite size and shape at the moment. I may put one of my other attempts on later if I have the courage!

Close up of the strawberries
And now I think I'm going to have to have a lie down!
