Simply Strawberries

Hello to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope you are all well and having a good week so far, sending hugs to those in need of them.

So, I decided to have a little break in making DT cards to make a card 'just for fun'.
My inspiration came from the wonderfully talented Squirrel who posted a really yummy looking card on the Without Words Challenge here. This is my attempt as CAS, I really had to stop myself adding anything else.
I used a gorgeous digi stamps that I won from Beccy's Place last year.


Items Used:
Digi stamp - Beccy's Place Strawberry Circle coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
White Gel Pen (for dots on the strawberries)
Papers - Doodlebug Designs and the gingham paper is from Lidl!
Spellbinders large circles and scalloped circles
Spellbinders Edgeabilities Classic Scallop
Craftcards Sentiment


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Without Words - Summer Picnic
Totally Gorjuss - Sweet
Crafty Cardmakers - Birthday
I ♥ Promarkers - Anything Goes
Pollycraft Challenges  Ruby Red
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog once again today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
Bye for now
hugs

While you struggle to restrain yourself from adding more elements, I'm struggling to get enough on my cards:) I think this card is perfectly balanced. The image is so sweet and beautifully colored that it deserves to be in the spotlight on its own, only teamed up with lovely rustic papers!

Darnell J Knauss said...

Good for you, Sue, to make a card just for fun!! I still think it is a multi-magnificent non-CAS card compared to mine, but that's only because sometimes I literally take a white card base, stamp one image, add a bow, and call it a day! I can't imagine what you must think sometimes! I love your summery picnic card with the fruit that looks good enough to eat right off the monitor! Have a wonderful weekend! Darnell

Ira Huberts said...

Sue, this is such a marvelous card! The image is extraordinary and you've colored it so beautifully. Your design, from layout to colors to patterns, is perfectly gorgeous. The flowery base paper is exquisite and so sweet when paired with the strawberries. This is another knock-out, my talented friend! (I won three images from Beccy's Place last week! What a joy to peruse her lovely shop!) I hope she sees this card because she would be so honored to see such a stunning creation highlighting her artwork. :o)

Hugs and blessings!
