Strawberry Delight

Last week's Clean & Simple challenge on Splitcoast was sketch challenge. We were given a sample from which to draw inspiration. This is my card for that challenge which I'm finally getting around to posting. I wanted to use something unique for my three objects in a row. Unique meaning not the first things that came to my mind so flowers and stars were out! I think the little strawberry from Tart & Tangy did the trick, with it's dimensional top cut out.

The red polka dot paper is from an old old set of Real Red Print Patterns that I've had forever! I just cut the edge of a Top Note from that paper, then tied the Kiwi ribbon and added the sentiment from the Something Sweet stamp set. Did you notice my silver eyelet?? When is the last time you used an eyelet? Maybe if we all use eyelets today we can bring them back into style!

Anyway, I couldn't live with all the white space at the top so had to finish it off with a scalloped trim edge.

So glad you stopped by today (and every day) and thanks for all the comments my faithful followers leave- you're the best!

Stampin' Tip: How to be unique? Don't do the first or second idea that comes to mind, but go with the third! Try it and see what happens. This forces you outside your box and comfort zone a little.

Have fun!
