Summertime fun with Strawberry Shortcake

What says British summertime any more than strawberry picking?  I used to love going strawberry picking as a child and would end up eating more than I took home.  With Wimbledon this weekend, the strawberry sales must be in overdrive!  I'm not really keen on the tennis .... I'll just stick with the strawberries and champagne thank you.

The image I have used is a Strawberry Shortcake colouring page found in the internet (just type free colouring page into your search bar).  She is so sweet.  I have used a metal heart brad with part of a green punched daisy to look like a strawberry.  I've also used the white daisy punch to make some strawberry blossom flowers.

The image has been coloured with pro markers and I've used Cosmic Shimmer glitter to add some sparkle.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Strawberries and Cream
Pollycraft - Pinkalicious
Creative Cottage - Summer Surprise
Charizma - metal mickey (metal brad)
By the Cute and Girly - Warm summer days
The Pixie Cottage - I used their sketch below

Thanks for looking,
