Sketch Challenge Wednesday

Well happy hump day AKA Wednesday! This means that it is sketch day over at SCS. Today's sketch is SC178 if you want to play along too. If you do, I would love to hear from you and see what you came up with so post a link with your creation in the comment section. This is really a cool sketch but I had a hard time figuring out what stamp I wanted to use. The image needed to be a smaller one so once I figured out what I was going to use it was smooth sailing. I really like how this card came out (is it ok to say that you like your card you made? LOL). As a matter of fact I think that I am going to do this for my final swap card with one of my monthly swap groups. Ok now for the deets. I ran my white layer through my cuttlebug using my swiss dots folder. Oh how I LOVE my cuttlebug! I received this as a gift from the ladies that I swap in my monthly group- boy I am going to miss you ladies. Anyway, I double matted that after I tied my red polka dotted organdy ribbon around it. I also added a green polka dot knot to the red ribbon. I stamped my strawberry onto white by masking off the red part of the strawberry with scotch tape and inking it up with my wasabi pad (there is no wasabi marker) then removing the tape and using my red marker to color in the rest of the strawberry. I used a white gel pen to make the seeds on the strawberry "pop". I stamped my sentiment beneath that- isn't that such a perfect saying for this stamp? I double matted the main image and attached that onto my red dp layer which was cut into a 2.5" X 2.5" square. I cut my green dp and matted that onto red, secured the striped grosgrain ribbon around and added 4 red eyelets to the corners. I adhered that to my card and finished off by attached my main image. Voila! This card just makes me smile. I need to see if I have a thank you berry much sentiment because that would work well for this too.
