Sweet strawberry kisses

This card is for the sketch for Tuesday morning sketches 149:


I downloaded the freebie strawberry digital image from Jane's doodles - this was prompted by the first challenge on a new blog Digi Haven, the idea being to use a digital image that is  a 'freebie forever'. I imported the image into Publisher and repeated it several times, tilting the direction of some of them, coloured in with promarkers - poppy and grass - and dotting with red here and there. I then printed the large strawberry with the computer generated text. The image was then matted on card coloured with the poppy promarker. Just the addition of the dotted ribbon and the 'with love' sentiment and the card was done. I used promarkers for I love promarkers challenge 120: for a little girl.
