Strawberries and cream

This weeks theme over at Papertake Weekly is Strawberry and Cream.

 I have been seeing cakes with banners strewn across them so thought I would give this idea a go for a card. I cut some florist wire to the length of the folded  card and popped it through the folded edge of the easel card and secured with tape. I then made a paper banner strung onto button twine from the Ribbon Girl  and tied it onto the two wires.

 For my card I used a card topper from the Hobby House  with a Mo Manning image, I coloured over the dress with a pink copic so that it coordinated with the theme and used various papers to cover the easel card andall finished off with alphabet stickers from My Minds Eye.

I hope you pop pver to see what the DT have made I assure you they are corkers :)
I am entering this into the Mo Manning Challenge
