Sweet Strawberry Birthday - Stampin' Up! Sweet Strawberry

   After what seems like a morning of one 'business-y' thing after another and each seems like it takes longer than the last I'm finally to the 'more fun' part of my day with sharing a card.  I was inspired by the layout at Freshly Made Sketches and will get this one shared over there just under the wire.

  This one looks better in person as my poor photography skills plus a cloudy day did nothing to help the colors come through but I hope you get the idea!

  This is a CAS design starting with a Whisper White thick base.  I cut a circle to use as a mask then used one of the new blending brushes and some Balmy Blue ink to blend some ink softly around the mask leaving a nice open circle in the center.

  I stamped the big sentiment from Pretty Perennials in black right across the circle and then embossed the little one in white onto Basic Black cardstock and popped it with mini dimensionals.

  The strawberries, stems and flower are all stamped and punched out and layered to the side of the circle to follow the sketch.

  The flower has some glitter in the center by way of Dazzling Details and is popped on a dimensional.  A baker's twine bow highlights the side of the birthday.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
