Stampin' for the Weekend - Week 6

Good Morrow!
Over at Stampin' for the Weekend this week we are using a colour combination.

Strawberries dipped in Chocolate!

This weeks sponsor is the lovely Heidi from Simon Says Stamp, who is offering one of you lucky crafters the chance to win a $25 gift voucher for the shop!
Will you WOW Donna and I, and will we pick you!

Play along and find out :o)

Please have a look at the Teams cards
here, and go visit their blogs to see how they created their cards!

These are the two pictures we would like you to use for inspiration.

My picture
(Must confess, these were delicious after I'd photographed them)
Nicolas Picture
I kept my card simple again, and used one of the new Magnolia Stamps from the Summer collection. I inked her up, and coloured her with copics. I then cut her out and mounted her on pink and brown card stock after punching the corners.
I used the MSDL punch to give a little detail to the brown card stock with the red underneath.

I then cut out some smaller pieces of card, and layered them to go underneath the image.
Added the sentiment which I cut out from Nesties and a little flower (which I coloured red) and added a charm for a little more detail.

Here is a little close up of cute Tilda with Ice Cream! Isn't she sweet!

Stamps: Magnolia Tilda and sentiment stamp from the new Summer 2009 Collection
Papers: Core'dinations textured card stock
Tools: Woodware corner rounder punch, Circle Nesties with Cuttle bug, Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch
Embellies: Flower and brad from stash, Charm from My Shop

Thank you for popping by Y

A Gorgeous card Kimmi, love your new Tilda, and you've done an amazing job on the coloring. And I do love how you've used the punch on the brown cardstock, and separated it by red, it really stands out so well like that, great layout too and love the dangly charm from your flower.
