Good enough to eat!!

My card today is for Truly Scrumptious and the challenge is "good enough to eat".
The girls on their design team all done a fab job with cupcake images but I wanted to do something different. I remembered having a pad of papers that had cookies as it's pattern and another had some animal shaped biscuits and I thought perfect! But after more than half an hour of looking for those papers my 5 year old Daughter informed me that she used them all ages ago grrrrr!!
So I was ready to give up and go with cupcakes when my Son Liam said you could use my Strawberry paper. Just perfect to go with a DSO image I have, so I went looking through his wee stash and also found some paper with recipes on it. Not sure if they go together very well but I gave it as go anyway lol.

Well what do you think, good enough to eat? I love this little squirrel, and I am quite happy with how my colouring of the strawberrie's turned out. Not as tasy looking as the designed paper though. Doesn't it just make you want to eat some nice juicy strawberries lol.

papers: Strawberry and Recipe papers by Karen Foster, cream striped textured card from Artymiss, linen cardstock.
Image: Digital Image from Digital Stamp Oasis
Colouring: Copics
Embelishments: Prima flowers, punched swirls, plastic flower, brad and chipboard sentiment from my stash.
Tools: Cuttlebug, swiss dots folder, All Night Media swirl punch

That it from me for a while. Hope I haven't made you feel too hungry lol.
