Color Throwdown #489

Hello friends.  One of my favorite fruits is strawberries, so when the inspiration photo came up for the new Color Throwdown challenge showing strawberries, I knew I had to play along!


Doesn't some strawberry lemonade sound good right now?!  Fresh strawberries in Michigan don't come out till June, so I've still got a few months to go yet, but I sure can dream when I see photo's like this!  And of course make a card...


I used PTI's Strawberry Patch stamp set to stamp my image and inked it up with GinaK's Red Velvet and Jelly Bean Green inks.  And just a tiny dot of yellow in the centers of the flowers...sorry, I just HAD to!!  My DSP is PTI's Bitty Big Pure Poppy and I finished off this sweet little card with some iridescent sequins and a narrow red seam binding ribbon.

You have until Monday (4/23) to play along with this challenge, so check out all the beautiful cards from the DT and then get your red and green inks and papers out and play along!  You can find all the information to play right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
