Strawberries and cream

This card is based on the colours for the Allsorts challenge this week based on Strawberries and cream. I've used my PTI anniversary set and SU ink colours sage shadow, always artichoke and rose red. I cut a circle with a nestie from the front of the card (this is an idea CASED from Anne) and then I put the main image inside. I bent the acrylic sentiment slightly to fit with the frame stamp.

Over on Mess2Magic Lisa has a blog candy with a difference. She wants you to post a picture which sums you up. I have chosen this cross stitch picture I stitched a few years ago and framed myself.
I've also got all functionality back with blogger - I switched to Google chrome from IE8 and everything works now!
