Strawberry Time--Sketches! by {Tamara} #97

[Don't forget, there's blogaversary candy waiting for someone to claim! Be sure to check out this post for the details!]

Okey dokey, it's time for another Sketches! {by Tamara} card sketch challenge! This is #97 and here's the sketch:

And here's my card. I love strawberries. I love to eat them right out of the garden while they're still warm from the sun. Just blow the dirt off and enjoy :) Strawberry time is about over here and they haven't been as good as usual--probably due to all the rain we got this Spring. So, I decided to put some strawberries that look good enough to eat on this card.

My base card is Whisper White with layers of Old Olive, Bashful Blue, and Summer Picnic DSP. The next element is Old Olive with it's border punched and Bashful Blue DSP from the hostess Prints Pack. The focal image is a Karen Lockhart image (I love her stamps!) stamped on Gina K. Pure Luxury 80lb paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers (see below). It was then cut/embossed with a Nestabilities die, matted with Bashful Blue and Old Olive done the same way, and popped up on 3M foam squares. A light blue gingham ribbon tied in a bow with a red button tied on with Perle cotton holds the sentiment on. It's from PTI's Mega Mixed Messages and was stamped on Whisper White with Memento Tuxedo Black and cut/embossed with a Spellbinders tag die. I think it's bright and cheerful and would make someone who's sick feel a little bit better. What do you think?
