Summer and strawberries

Home alone today ...hubby out at work and daughter at a festival....time for a spot of blog reading and crafting.
Well one of my first blogs to read was Christine's here with a lovely gallery of summery photos for inspiration.
I live in Tiptree....a village with a jam factory....so summer is definitely all about strawberries!
So...here is my card....


The flower border and the plaid background are made with Waltzingmouse stamps.
I made the strawberries with a heart and a daisy punch and added little dots for texture.
The sentiment is also from Waltzingmouse and stamped on a Spellbinders die cut shape.
I'm also submitting this for Waltzingmouse sketch challenge 104.
Hope you like it!
