IO's challenge this week is "The Colors of Summer". The first thing that came to mind was strawberries. My strawberry patch is the most popular spot in my backyard. They taste so much sweeter when they are homegrown and it's what I look the most forward to harvesting in the summer!
I stamped IO's Single Strawberry A8973 several times with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them up with Copics then fussy cut them out. Then they were arranged in the Strawberry Carton D8979. This was popped up over a Spellbinders Tear drop Circle and matted over a hand cut circle and a Spellbinder's Scalloped Circle.
I really need to find a new way to organize my Dies! A friend of mine made a card and use this fabulous Impression Obsession Large Bow Die - DIE063-I, when I asked her who made that die she said she cut it from one of mine. Sure enough, I dug through my dies and lo and behold it was mine...didn't even know I owned it. DUH!! If you have a wonderful way of organizing your dies could you share with me.....obviously I need all the help I can get~LOL!! I added a pretty border using Impression Obsession Border Duo 1 Set - DIE017-V, a strip of card stock and brown satin ribbon.

I used up the scraps and a single strawberry to add a little interest to the inside....
