Summer Fruits - Simon Says Stamp DT Card

 Hello lovely peeps,
 I am so not liking this hot & humid weather as along with heat & humidity comes the horrible thunderstorms! My shoulder is just as good at the Met Office I've decided lol. I kept saying to everyone at work on Monday evening that a storm was brewing as my shoulder felt like it was going to explode, & they all kept telling me I was wrong it wouldn't be until Wednesday as they had seen the weather forecast. Four hours later & many cracks of thunder & forks of lightening later I think the Met Office should hire me, I don't need a degree in Meteorology I have a shoulder lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is

My lovely teamies & I are featuring American Crafts products on our cards this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter our challenge :) 
 I had a real stamp dilemma going on when I made this card & ended up with a pile of stamps & having trouble deciding which to use. Eventually I decided to use one of my favourite Tilda's for the third time, that's when you know she's a favourite when she's been treated to three inkings lol.
 This little card will be popped in my Etsy Shop later.
The Copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair E44 E43, E43, dress & headscarf - C3, C1, C00, boots - R85, R83, R81,RV52, basket - W4, W2, W00, strawberry - R89, R59, R39 / YG95, YG93, YG61
