Thank You Berry Much

Don't you love finding unexpected images on your Cricut cartridges? That's what happened when I decided to make this thank you card. I had decided to use the stamp from My Pink Stamper's Fruit and Vege Puns set and did a search on the Gypsy for a strawberry. This image was just what I had in mind and surprisingly it's on the Rock Princess cart. I never would have thought to look on that cart for a this cut!
The card base and strawberry are cut from Stampin Up Riding Hood Red paper. The green houndstooth paper is from GCD Studios, Melody Ross Collections. The collection is called Homespun Chic. I love this paper, it actually has a slight texture to it. The edges were cut using the wavy edge blade that came with the Your Story paper trimmer. The rest of the papers are scraps. The small center flower is cut from white glitter paper and all the flower layers were inked with Tim Holtz Antique Linen distress ink. I also added some transparent Perle Pen by Viva Decor to the center of the flowers and the berry seeds, though that's hard to see in the picture. The stamped sentiment was heat embossed with black Ranger heat embossing powder. The off white grosgrain ribbon is from Offray.
I hope you too can find something fun and unexpected the next time you're looking for that perfect image!
Thanks for stopping by!
