Sweetest Day Ever

Today is another Inspiration Day at Claudia & Company

For my card I used Jillibean Soup's Chilled Strawberry papers, and what better image to pair them up with than a co-branded Unity Stamp Co. Itty Bitty Stamp set Sweetest Day.  I tried something different and stamped the image on Kraft Cardstock and colored it with copics.  I like how it turned out and may just need to try people images on Kraft cardstock next.  After coloring the strawberry I added rhinestones to it.  I added some Red Satin Ribbon, and decided it was a bit too fancy for this card, so I then added some Brown Baker's Twine over it.  The Basic Grey Kioshi buttons were threaded with Red Baker's Twine and some linen thread.  The image and sentiment are both adhered with 3-D dots.

Making this card made me about think about strawberry picking.  I started taking the kids strawberry picking after Trevor was born and we have gone each year since.  We go to a farm about 5 minutes away (can't beat that!) and after picking strawberries (and eating a few on the tractor ride) have an ice cream cone or a strawberry sundae.  Fresh strawberries are the best!
