Kitty Bee DT Card - Summer Fun

We're at the half way point of our "Summer Fun" challenge at Kitty Bee, this fortnight we're sponsored by Lemon Shortbread and Scrap 'N' Dipity, both of whom kindly gave the DT some images to play with.  I chose this beautiful digi from Lemon Shortbread called Strawberry Hat Kid, which I coloured with my Promarkers.  The colouring looks much richer in reality, reds never photograph well and the fruits look much flatter than they actually are.
 The strawberry paper is from an ancient Papermania pack called Little Cake Shoppe, which I still really like, I have it in A4 and A5, much depleted now.
I cut away a section of card from the right hand side of the blank and glued on a die cut border, cut with a Sizzix die from green pearl card.  I lined the card with red paper so that the die cut foliage really stands out against it.
The sentiment was stamped with a Papermania Daisy and Dandelion stamp and die cut with a Spellbinders die.  Whilst still in the die, I added a little Twisted Citron Distress Ink for a hint of colour, and coloured the butterflies bright red for a bold splash of colour.
The strawberry flowers were made with a punch, I used some yellow glitter flock for the centres, the foliage was created with the same die as the border, I simply snipped it into sprigs.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Creative Corner - Anything Goes
As You Like It - Favourite Colouring Medium and Why - I love Promarkers, I love how they blend and how the colours layer up to a rich, intense shade.  I also find colouring with them very therapeutic.
