I coloured the image using Promarkers, Poppy and the Blender pen for the fruits, Leaf, Forest and Pine for the leaves, and Satin, Caramel and Cocoa for the Basket. I then went around the image with chalks to finish it off and cut the image out using a Nellie Snellen Circle Frame die.
Inspiration for the layout came from A Gem of a Challenge, so I set to work cutting the various layers of the strawberry patterned paper and plain cream paper. I cut a circle from the cream paper to layer the image up and used the center die from the Nellie's Circle Frame's to cut the Birthday sentiment which I had printed.
I stamped the "60" within the Birthday sentiment using Versamark then embossed in Gold. I also used a Nellie's Border die on the cream sections for added interest and all important prettyness! I edged all of the layers, backing circle and sentiment tag using Brilliance Galaxy Gold Pearlescent Ink.
To complete the card I adhered all of the layers together adding ribbon from my stash, a couple of Butterflies which were cut using Marianne Creatables dies and finished using the Galaxy Gold Ink, pearls and Diamond Stickles for added sparkle, a few pearls top and bottom and I attached the sentiment tag using foam pads.
Think you'll be seeing those strawberry papers on a Tilda card at some point, I think they would go really well!
