Gecko Galz May facebook challenge - yummy strawberries

Gecko Galz has 6 challenges on their facebook group.  One is yummy strawberries.

It took me ages looking through all the collage sheets to find the one I wanted for this challenge.
I have layered one of the precoloured images from Gecko Galz "Retro style" collage sheet onto strawberry paper from Pretty Graphics.  Added strawberry brads from Daydream Designs.  Typed sentiment.  Layered all onto red card.

I would like to add this card into the following challenges.

613 Avenue Create 122 - anything goes/optional feminine

Crafty Hazelnut's pattern paper challenge - anything goes covered with pattern paper.

Get Creative 14 - for the ladies or mothers day

Glitter n Sparkle 135 - anything goes

Try it on Tuesday - Retro
