Thank You Berry Much!


Happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a safe 4th of July so far! I'm spending my holiday at home and I plan on spending lots of time in my craft room!  As a matter of fact, I made this card today. I got this stamp set and paper from Paper Trey Ink a few weeks ago, so I decided to pull it out and play with it. I felt this was the perfect pattern for a hot summer day!

This is the beginning of a new month of sketch challenges at Viva La Verve.  July's Week One sketch was designed by the talented Verve Diva Amber Hight:

The samples from all the Verve Divas for this challenge are awesome! Go check them out! If they don't get your creative spirit going, I don't know what will!

I punched 2 Fruitti Tutti (PTI) squares and 2 white squares with a 1 1/2 punch. I punched 4 SU Pear Pizazz scalloped squares with 2" punch. I paper pierced all around the green squares.
I stamped the strawberry(PTI)  in SU Riding Hood Red ink, twice, cutting one out and adhering it to the top of the first strawberry with foam tape. Hopefully you can see this on this photo:

I cut the SU Riding Hood Red circle with my Cricut Expression and the "Bloom" cartridge. This card is 6 x 6, so the Spellbinders Circle Dies that I have were too small to cut a circle large enough for this card. After I cut out the circle, I ran it through my crimper to give the circle some dimension.
 I tied a red gingham check ribbon into a double bow, then added a green button to the top of it. 
I think this 'tied" it all together. heehee

Thanks for stopping by!
