Just Magnolia challenge week 43

On they have a sketch this week, which is so fun to work with as it takes out all the geuss work, every now and then its nice to have a sketch to flollow.
I decided to use this strawberry Tilda which i have had for ages and just been neglecting, also another challenge for me this week is purple, cant figure why but i have a real problem working with purple.  Well i hope you will enjoy what i came up with.  I colored her with my copics, the papers are so old i dont even remember where i got them from, but they have been in the shop forever i decided to use them.  have also used two of my ek success border punches one is a scalolop with an emboss and the other just the scallop.  These roses are new in the shop so i had to use them, one of the reasons why i felt i had to use purple, so i could use the new roses, oops nearly forgot about my beautiful Mc gill punch for the fern.  Just to tell you something else while i am letting you know about my Mc gill punch, are you aware that Mcgill have a lifetime gaurentee on their punches, one of the suppliers told me a while ago and i just thought i would share that gem with you, so if your punch packs in dont throw it away send it back.  Sorry about the poor quaulity of my photos this evening, will try retake them in the morning.
