Jam Packed with Creative Moments

 We have a new challenge starting today over at Creative Moments, and as always it is Anything Goes.

We are sponsored by the lovely Cute As A Button for this challenge and I decided to use the 'Strawberry Preserves' image as it is the time of year for jam making now - if you managed to get a good crop of fruit with this awful weather we have been having that is!

Prize to be awarded - 2 digital images

I coloured the image using Papermania watercolour pens, and some watercolour pencils too. I then folded a plain base card into an easel style and covered the base with pink holographic paper (with the light it looks much darker than it actually is). I used an off-cut from a previous die-cut to make the easel stand and added little butterfly gems to this. No sentiment was added as I thought this could be used for a variety of occasions. I cut the image square and then layered it onto the holographic paper, adding another couple of butterfly gems to finish.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
CraftyCalendar - Anything Goes
dragonflydreams - summer fun (preserves are part of the fun of summer)
ATSM #411 Make your mark

I will finish with a photo of some pretty mint flowers :)
