Charisma Cardz Challenge Lets get Fruity !! :-)

I don't think I got the title right I think the Charisma Cardz Challenge this week should read 'FRUITY COLOURS' ,, but you get the idea eh :-)I am now on week 3 of my GD month,, the weeks are flying by !! :-)
As soon as I saw the theme I knew whch stamps I was going to use :-) The last time I used this Tilda was when I was GD for the Charisma team last July ,,, shame !!!

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge :-)

the Tilda and the strawberry are from the Lazy Summer Days stamps. I masked Tilda to sit her on the strawberry, bet her dungarees are strawberry stained now ,,, should have coloured them red eh !! :-)
the papers are Basic Grey from the Nook and Pantry paper pad. I also used some brown/red coredinations. I embossed a panel with a flower folder and sanded then stickled :-) All the coredinations were sanded and all the papers were inked with antique linen distress ink :-)
The flowers are from the Wild Rose Studio ,, the lovely big rose was sprayed with home made glimmer mist ,, antique linen ink, water and perfect pearls :-) I then added stickles for more sparkle :-) The sentiment is from the same Magnolia set and the frame was made with a Nellie Snellen multiframe :-)

I am also entering this into the C.R.A.F.T Challenge whose theme is RED :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one and don't forget to pop over to the Charisma Cardz Challenge to see what the fab talented team have made too :-)

I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-) Also we have a DT call for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge if you are interested in applying, you can see the details on the Challenge blog :-)
