strawberry layer cake

It's a really good job it's a Bank Holiday here in England today as I had no time to craft over the weekend as I was at a craft fair. It was a successful weekend so definitely worth it but it means that today has felt like a Sunday and I'm going to be messed up all week! Here's one of the cards I made today using a lovely Forever Friends decoupage topper that has been in my stash for years!

I started with a 6x6 white card blank which I rounded the corners of. I layered this with a glittery paper from the Dovecraft 'London Line' range. I mounted the decoupaged topper onto a die-cut circle, that I inked the edges of with Spun Sugar distress ink, and then mounted this onto a die-cut, silver mirror card, mat. The final touch was the 3 strawberries in the corner which were an extra element from the decoupage sheet. I used different thicknesses of foam pads to layer them up and then accented them with some glossy accents.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-
