Strawberry Girl

I created this card today using Strawberry Girl from Mo's Digital Pencil. I started with a pink card base.  I added a piece of white card stock cut just a little smaller than the base and embossed using a dot embossing folder. I added a strip of pink plaid patterned paper down one side.  Then I layered a green dotted ribbon onto a pink ribbon and added them across the middle of the card.  I cut a square out of pink card stock and punched the corners using an eyelet lace corner punch and then added it behind the ribbon.  I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I backed it in pink card stock.  I added 3 green pearls to the upper corner and 3 more to the opposite bottom corner.  I added 5 pink and 5 white flowers and a strawberry charm to one side of the image. I also added another white flower and pink flower to the other side of the image.  I added white and pink pearls to the centers of the flowers.  I also added 3 green pearls to the upper corner of the image.
