Strawberry Fields Forever

Ok, again I've named my card in courtesy of a famous song. The reason? Hehe, no reason, but when my path crossed with this challenge, all came to my mind was some funky hippie time.

The idea of this card is behind the song.
(Lennon: We always had fun at Strawberry Fields. So that's where I got the name. But I used it as an image. Strawberry Fields forever.)

Here it is.


This time I leave only one previous pic of this, just to show how light effects the quality of the colours. ( Again, but unfortunately light plays tricks, backing colour of the strawberries is following the theme using same rainbow method. It looks plain orange, and it is not, but hey, there is always a possibility me to take better pic in the daylight.)


Here's the thing: Gorgeous strawberry digi is from Digi Doodle Shop, I just swapped the colour, needed white.

See? I have figured how buttons are cute addition!!!

I coloured some paper under the punched line and corner. It's rainbow style coloured, starting from teal and then tangerine, then melon and ending with kiwi. "strawberry fields forever" is printed 4 times on the digi. Believe or not, I did it on purpose :)

And finally


Colours I tried to follow:
Punch - Fiskars
Die Cut - Nestabilities scallop circle
Bow - old stash
Buttons - collection in a jar.
Phrase - The Beatles - Strawberry Fields Forever
Stamp - Digi Doodle
Gems - old stash


This will fit:
