Strawberry Fields {for ever}

Hi ho - a couple of weeks ago I borrowed the Strawberry Patch sets from a friend.  I was having a terribly difficult time getting anything to work out whenever I used the stamps and was resigned to return them having done nothing of interest.

That changed today.  I got to play along on the CPS sketch this week and had this vision in my head of the strawberries.  Here's how it turned out.

I started with a Soft Suede card base and then die cut the Happy Hexagon cover plate in white.  I also used the Fine Linen striped pattern and embossed using the Divine Swirls folder.
I cut the Lacey Circle form Cherry Cobbler card stock and another circle from white.  I stamped the largest image from Strawberry Patch then used the solid images in Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke.   I colored the flower center with the Y35 copic.  The sentiment is stamped on a double ended banner die cut.  I made the mat layer by hand.
Inside I carried the strawberry theme through with a leaf and berry cluster.

Thanks for stopping!
