I Love Promarkers DT Card - Metal / Metallic

It's challenge time again at I Love Promarkers, this week our theme is "Metal / Metallic", and we're sponsored by Sherri Baldy, who's offering a digi prize to three lucky winners.  For my DT offering I've used one of my favourite Lili of the Valley stamps, as it features a metal colander, I never tire of colouring this one and I'm not sure why, there aren't all that many different ways to colour it!  To add to the metal theme I've also added a strawberry charm, although my Mum thinks it looks like certain parts of male trouser equipment with an inadequate fig leaf!  If you want to buy said suggestive charm, they're available from Live and Love Crafts.
 The blue gingham card, I think, came from Payper box, the doily and strawberry print ribbon are from Dovecraft, the leafy border was cut with a Sizzix die and the flowers were made with Xcut punches.
I have to say that I was salivating as I coloured this one, and after I finished making this card, I went into the kitchen and baked a strawberry cheesecake sponge!
