So Sweet of you!

Hi~

Well, you made it to Friday, and it's almost time to start the weekend!

I can't seem to get off my kick of pink and green lately.  I went digging in my scrap box and this is what we have today! :-)))) I am almost positive my scraps multiply at night. (Sort of like laundry)

I started with a standard A 2 kraft card base. I found some confetti cream cardstock in my stash that I embossed using the Distressed Stripes embossing folder using the letter press technique. I really love the pink in the background.

A strip of pink gingham checked patterned paper was cut and applied along with a length of green satin ribbon to the lower portion of the card front. Some diecut circles were mounted to the left side of the card front acting as a focal point for the paper pieced strawberry from Wilson Designs Strawberry Lemonade set.  A fussy seam binding bow embellished with a button, twine, and a sentiment tag was placed just lower right of the strawberry focal image.  A touch of cream kraft paint was added for a shabby look. To complete the look, three pink buttons were applied vertically to the upper right corner of the card front.

The inspiration for my card was found at this week's Inspired By Stamping Sketch Challenge.
Another round in the playground at Pixie's Crafty Snippet Challenge.

I'm excited to share that this card was featured in CREATE's April Sketch Gallery.
I hope you have a wonderful day!
~Tammy!
